I have not heard that act, but I will definitely make an effort to do so. Thanks for posting that. I love the goth-tinged atmosphere.

Seriously considering buying this:

Miles Davis - Bitches Brew 40th Anniversary Box Set (CD/LP/DVD) at Amoeba Music

I've never heard the album, but I saw this set in JBHiFi numerous times and it just looks so fucking cool. It was $200+, and this would cost me $112. It's used, but...

Bitches Brew definitely lives up to its reputation as an essential album. The box looks awesome, but, if I may make an alternate suggestion, you might want to consider getting the Complete Bitches Brew Sessions box along with Bitches Brew Live or Dark Magus (a later but super-intense live album). That combination would probably cost about as much as the super box, but is a stronger representation of that phase of his career, I think.

Hmm... I'm still dipping my feet into jazz. I don't think I quite need four and a half hours of Miles in one hit at this stage. But I'll look into it, see what's cheaper.

Q named Dark Magus one of the 50 heaviest albums of all time... interesting

Bought the 40th. Mainly because it'll be one of the coolest-looking things I'll own. And if I ever do move out, it will take pride of place on some sort of hipster shelf.

That's not a bad price. And for you, it's an absolute steal.

Nice. I'm a sucker for those damn box sets - I'm surprised that I haven't been persuaded to buy it myself yet.

So, Ascension.

Good Lord. I don't know that I liked it, but I certainly was intrigued and impressed by it. I really dug Tyner's solo, and the duo bass solos were cool, at least a counterpoint to all that tenor sax. As a matter of fact, I really enjoyed it for the first 5 or 10 minutes until the cacophony began to grate. I listened to edition II because it's the Trane's preferred, but I really don't have any desire to hear the first at the moment. Is it really necessary? I just cannot imagine sitting through the 80 minute CD version containing both takes, at least in one go.

Bitches Brew is just something else.

The performance of It Never Entered My Mind from Workin' With The Miles Davis Quintet is one of the most beautiful things I've ever heard.
