    I have the variant 3A/2B/2C/2D.
    Does anyone know if this is an AAA pressing from the original tapes or if it went through some digital processing?
    Thanks in advance.

      This sounds fantastic.Really energetic and each instrument is presented in excellent detail - quite an achievement considering what a busy and chaotic recording this is at times. I own an old CD copy but this is a far more engaging listen compared to the CD.
      Vinyl is flat and super quiet, and I didn’t hear one pop or tick throughout playback of both records. Excellent pressing quality.
      Really happy with this 2 record set.

          LOVE this pressing. Excellent soundstage. Regarding the music, it's hard to say anything about something so boundary crossing as Bitches Brew. It transgresses at every turn. Music turns to concept; jazz fuses with electric force; reality is riffed on; sound surfs on the undercurrents of perception. After 10 years of listening to Bitches Brew, these are my conclusions. Miles is poking holes through the musical universe, running down the voodoo, and shaking off the contemporary stigmas of jazz. He reveals his soul, wild and untamed. The real genius of Miles is twofold: one his horn, and two is his band. But with Bitches Brew it's more of a congregation than a band. There was something spiritually significant at work here with his all star team: Wayne Shorter, Joe Zawinul, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, John McLaughlin, and others. Here we witness algorithm and chemistry at work. It's pure alchemy. New patterns and were invented. Underlying the improvisations is a compositional study that holds everything together. Art of the highest form.

            This record sounds superb!I've had some concerns, because of the music-length per side, but it plays at good volume with a powerfull sound and my copy is flawless. I dont own the original pressing, but I dont think you'll find a better sounding version. I think, I can hear some tape hiss in silent parts, which is a good sign to me that this pressing is probably from analog source.

              not a huge leap from the original. improved soundstage, horn tonality slightly improved.

                on the label it says "recorded in 1970", stupid people would call that an alternative fact. We know the sessions this album was edited from took place in August 1969.

                  Is this based on the original mix or is it sourced from the `98/`99 remix by Wilder?

                    Picked up a cheap used but still sealed copy of this yesterday. I must say, to my ears it sounds great. Despite having listened to this music many times in the last 25 years (via cd and streaming) this has never been one of my favorite Miles albums. I always found it difficult to digest but I kept trying because of how famous and influential it is. Because I never liked it that much I have never owned it on vinyl, until now. Banal as it sounds, this music sounded new to me when I played these lps for the first time the other day. Even without headphones, more detail and sonic richness came across that have really enhanced my appreciation and experience for what is an indisputable classic...but which I just never liked as much as other Miles Davis albums, especially its predecesor, In a Silent Way. I would recommend this pressing and say that this is one of the best sounding lps I own which has led me to really re-evaluate my own appreciation for this music and understand it in a totally different way.

                      Ridiculous. Opened it up and got Side 1, Side 2, Side 1, and Side 2. Waited to buy for 3 years and then this garbage. A little quality control at Sony would be nice. Should have gotten the MOFI in 2014.
