      Score for Shhh...
      A glimpse of Miles's hand writing,
      in this case for the track "Shhh,"
      which appeared on In A Silent Way.

      In A Silent Way advertisement
      A rare advertising foray into unarguable truth.

      It was in the article inside this edition that he said,
      "I could put together the greatest rock 'n roll band you ever heard."
      He proved his point with A Tribute to Jack Johnson, recorded in February-April 1970.



      Bitches Brew Advertisement
      Presumably they meant highest common denominator...
      Bitches Brew was released in April 1970, changing music forever.

      In the Spring and Summer of 1970 Miles was promoting Bitches Brew.
      This led him to appear in a variety of rock environments.
      The story goes that the Grateful Dead musicians watched
      Miles and his musicians from the wings,
      feeling utterly in awe and intimidated.
      Miles's live double album Black Beauty was culled from the April 10 night.

      Miles as a late addition? Hmmm... Miles's IoW performance has been
      officially released as part of a spectactular DVD made by director Murray Lerner called Miles Electric.
