Betty Davis - The Columbia Years 1968-1969

FCVLTA312

Miles and Betty fans have long debated the truth of a near mythological session recorded in Studios B and E at Columbia’s 52nd
Street Studios on May 14th and 20th, 1969. The landmark session was produced by Miles and Teo Macero and featured Betty on vocals,
accompanied by Jimi Hendrix Experience drummer Mitch Mitchell, guitarist John McLaughlin, Herbie Hancock on keys, and Dylan/Miles
session bassist Harvey Brooks. Other players included bassist Billy Cox (Band of Gypsys), saxophonist Wayne Shorter, and organist Larry
Young. Now, Light In The Attic, with full support from Betty herself, presents these recordings to the public for the very first time. These
historic sessions—never heard, never bootlegged—predate Miles’ revolutionary album, Bitches Brew, and are the true birth of Miles’ jazzrock
explorations, along with the roots for Betty’s groundbreaking funk that came years later, starting with her self-titled debut in 1973.
While, ultimately, these recordings would go unreleased for nearly half a century, they would greatly shape each of their careers.
