Miles in Belgium Tree : Announcement

Miles in B

Thanks to the vision, effort and collaboration of P. V. O., C. V. and A.V.L., Miles-Trees.Org is pleased to announce the open subscriptions to Miles in Belgium (Miles In B).  This 7-CD set documents Miles Davis performances in Belgium from 1967 to 1989.

Our team of MFs have put lots of hours into researching, sourcing, splicing, assembling, cleaning, balancing, and generally restoring this music with a focus on clarity and completeness. We think you will be very impressed with the result, and even if you have some of these shows, you will want to get in on this offering.  Also, there are also sprinklings of commentary throughout from such luminaries as Kees van Kooten, Herbie Hancock, and Miles Davis himself.
You can signup for this tree through  July 2004. Just go to update your profile. If you are not a registered user of Miles-Trees.Org, then you can create a user profile here.  Either way, all you need to do is to update your profile and check Miles In B and indicate your tree preferences: branch or leaf; audio or SHN.

IMPORTANT:  If you intend to sign up as a branch, then you must agree to burn up to 4 CDs for B&P or equivalent trade with your lower branches or leaves, and you must promise to responsibly serve as a branch -  be prompt and responsive in communication and in burning and sending discs.
