Miles Davis: You're Under Arrest (CBS)

Brian Case, Melody Maker, 15 June 1985

JUDGING BY the cover shots of Miles looking studiedly dangerous with a sub-machinegun, and judging by the music too, the great man is after the money on this one. Those who long for the old Miles should go straight out and buy Miles Davis & John Coltrane Live in Stockholm 1960 on the Dragon label or — even older Miles — the new Boplicity, At Last! with Miles and the Lighthouse All-Stars.
