Betty Davis

The Columbia Years 1968-1969 (cd / vinyl pre-order)


Miles Davis fans have long debated the truth of a near mythological session recorded in Studios B and E at Columbia's 52nd Street Studios on May 14th and 20th, 1969. The landmark session was produced by Miles and Teo Macero and featured Davis's wife Betty on vocals, accompanied by Jimi Hendrix Experience drummer Mitch Mitchell, John McLaughlin and Herbie Hancock (other players included Harvey Brooks, Billy Cox, Wayne Shorter, and Larry Young).

These historic sessions predate Miles' revolutionary album Bitches Brew, and are considered the true birth of his jazz-rock explorations, as well as the roots of Betty's groundbreaking mid-1970s Funk albums.

A Light In The Attic release available as a CD in digipak and an LP.

Pre-order for July 8th shipping. Very few copies available.

The result is a record that is capable of extremely clean and un-forced high-frequency response as well as a detailed and solid stereo image. This half-speed master was cut by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios.
