    I'd been wanting this one for a long time, and finally got lucky and found a second-hand copy of the metal spine edition dirt cheap. Definitely worth owning.

      This box and the On the corner box set capture much better the genius of the fusion era for Miles. I think those two are the must buy's (if you can afford it)//

        5 CD Box still available at Mile for quite a bit less than what you're seeing here.

          I remember when this came out in 2003 I bought it at a Virgin Megastore. It's got some great music on it and a rhythm section that is funkier than a mosquito's tweeter! I'd safely say I have most of the boxsets now and all the Bootleg series. They really need to focus on the Agharta and Panagea albums now and then the comeback, 1981's The Man With The Horn and We Want Miles as it's a neglected era in my opinion. Star People, Decoy and You're Under Arrest are too slick and the music is more dated now as it was far too stylized and synthetic. Still I'd buy anything by Miles that Columbia put out as he's the master of Jazz!
