McLatchey's Second Tier

It's been about 13 years since the great March 7th show from this stint was released as It's About That Time, but even though the concert from the night before was recorded just as well, it hasn't followed in all that time. If anything the band was a little freer the night before, but they were no less on fire than they were on the 7th, in classic Bitches Brew form. Fortunately Columbia/Sony Legacy have been very attentive to the Miles Davis archives, so I'm hoping this will eventually show up as one of their ongoing "Bootleg Series" Because this is one of those gems of that year and it was recorded beautifully. I found this sample from it on Youtube.
