One Final Note has an interesting (and very long) article about some of the most memorable Miles Davis bootleg recordings:
The bootleg world seems to go on forever — no conclusions, no authorized issues, no final word, and certainly no agreement on which concert is the best, the definitive, the one wherein the true Miles may be found. One Site lists fully 187 “liberated bootlegs” for Miles Davis. For instance. And there are DVDs, too. Yes! Thanks to the documentary diligence of European and Japanese radio and television and the obsessive-compulsive online collectors of today, it is now theoretically possible to re-create most of Miles’ overseas tours between 1967 and 1991, from the comfort of your own computer.
