  • Originally released in 1974, "Big Fun" presents music from three different phases of Miles Davis' "electric" period in the early seventies. Pages One and Four with "Great Expectations" and "Lonely Fire" were recorded three months after the "Bitches Brew" sessions and feature sitar, tambura, tabla and other Indian instruments. It's also the first time Davis played his trumpet with the Harmon tone mute, which was so typical of him and makes his trumpet sound almost like a sitar

    "Ife" was part of the "On The Corner" sessions in 1972 with a groove and a collection of musicians with individual improvisations and variations on a hypnotic bass line. Recorded in 1970, "Go Ahead" is an outtake from the Jack Johnson Sessions. The recording is based on riffs and grooves with a relatively minimalist line-up of Steve Grossman on soprano sax, Dave Holland on bass, Jack DeJohnette on drums and John McLaughlin on guitar complete with Wah Wah pedal.
