      While it inspired some great listening, I mostly wanted to punch this book in the face.

      For fans only helps being familiar with Miles music from 1967 1975 before jumping in Also helps to have read Miles Beyond by Paul Tingen as well While not as meticulously researched as Tingen s book admittedly Tingen pretty much covered the chronology and personnel aspect of this music so any of that would be redundant , definitely attempts to place Miles early 70 s music in an American socio political cultural context his musings on this are the best part of the book And, as with Tingen s book [...]
