Miles Davis

... the missing links

OLD Europe (see RSF), November 4th 2003



What you'll find here are only links to Miles Davis music which are NOT included in Peter Losin's list. As they show up there, they will vanish here! Sometimes you may find different or additional information here, in general I will more focus on the period of 1980-1991 (although I like the 60s and beginning 70s stuff best).

You will find: Official and Inofficial Releases, Bulkware, Radio and TV Broadcasts, Videos, Bootlegs, Bootlegs of Bootlegs and Private Recordings (PR).
Some additional track info can be taken from Jan Lohmann's discography The sound of Miles Davis (highly recommended to anyone who is interested in The Theme).

What's New?
Don't miss the credits.
You can get all data-files compressed to 1 file (70k).

  • means: linked through Peter Losin's discography at http://www.plosin.com/milesAhead/disco.aspx which is part of his Miles Ahead site.
