Any comments on the quadrophonic mix of this masterpiece?
I'm new to miles I arrived via the post punk route. I've always favoured live albums and the day this arrived I just couldn't stop playing it and now I see its influence everywhere , PiL's Paris Au Printemps, Jah wobble's Largely live in...(I forget where) etc etc

I really admire the way Miles got some primitive Punky proto-Keith Levene tones out of a pro like John McLaughlin. (See the outtakes Duran & Johnny Bratton on YouTube for the most hardcore examples)
"Play it like you can't play guitar"
I love Pangea, Agharta, Black Magus, but they're a different animal entirely. ( i hated the low quality badly recorded "in concert" , it was like listening through a keyhole)Nervous newcomers dipping a toe in these waters should start with the more accessible Live Evil and be bowled over by the exuberance of the live material.

If this show inspires you to go on to collect other shows just be aware that December 19th and Feb 21st are the only 1970 shows with guitar.
Miles finally added a permanent live guitarist ( then a second , then a third!) From 1972 but by then the music was totally different and much darker. So Live Evil is Utterly Unique capturing a unique moment of musical discovery for Miles and his band, how many Live Albums can say that?

Well the pressing quality on my record sounds good as there is no skips or clicks or warps.
.not sure what the source audios are to make the record ? Overall id say the sound is decent not amazing kinda flat .
I wouldnt say this is bad beard .

As for the music :
Miles is playing with an amazing line up on live evil .it really shows on this recording as the music is very tight creative and selective. full of emotion yet performed with careful precision.
"What I say" is pretty cool high energy madness . John McLaughlins guitar playing is smoken & Jack DeJohnette drum solo is has some interesting patterns going on .
the mellow tunes are very atmospheric .somewhat of spacey ballads , you can tell hancock and shorter were involved in those .

Very happy with the sound quality on this. I only have a few 4MWB pressings, none of which are bad, but they're also not great. That being said, this is the best sounding pressing of the bunch. Super quiet, dynamic, clear channel separation, tight low end, and sparkling highs. This was going to be a placeholder until I could get an original, but I'm satisfied enough with this that I likely won't seek out another copy.

Truly a heavy-duty-epic, "Live Evil" marked an end to the late '60's early fusion period of "In A Silent Way" - "Filles de Kilimangero" - "A Tribute To Jack Johnson" - "Bitches Brew" for Miles Davis.
Tons of great percussion with multiple organs highlight these live tracks for me.
Maybe it takes a couple listens to grow on you but after listening to it on a 90 minute tape loop for 10 hours straight after a New Years all-nighter in 2002-03 it became to me unmatched and a pinnacle LP in the Miles catalog.
- True I am a Miles Davis fan, but this could very well be my favorite LP ☺
