"This 66 minute set from April 9th 1970 at the Fillmore West is a different beast to what followed in the next two days, with the April 10th concert available as 'Black Beauty' and the April 11th one in part on 'The Bootleg Series Volume 3' and in full on 'April 11th 1970 Fillmore West'. Whilst all these sets start out with 'Directions' and 'Miles Runs The Voodoo Down' thereafter the sets differ. The key reason to buy this is the presence of the rare 'This', 3rd track here. The arrangements aren't densely packed like the following nights, they could even be called sparse, with lots of space left around the arrangements. To these ears Chick Corea's playing here is much less atonal than it can be, in fact it rocks. This might have a lot to do with appealing to the audience, with Miles supporting The Grateful Dead and Stone The Crows."
