Miles Davis Posted by Scott 09/04/08 Beautiful images and beautiful music, they don’t make either like this anymore. Bitches Brew ranks up there as one of my all time favorite album covers.

I live in South Africa ;) 2 Justin S. Meyers says: September 4, 2008 at 5:58 am “Bitches Brew?,” Snoop Dog might rather give it the modern title of… “Bring me my 40oz, biatch!” 3 Colin at Hard Format says: September 4, 2008 at 6:07 am These are wonderful, Mati Klarwein the painter of the latter two definitely deserves a mention. Though I love these covers, I’d also recommend the Japanese designed covers for Agharta, Pangaea and Dark Magus. 4 Rae Davis says: September 4, 2008 at 9:18 am iIve always enjoyed In A Silent Way, the cover was so intense yet very simple. Around The Corner is a good cover too, it has this Saturday morning cartoon vibe too it. Both very influential records, to me at least. :) 5 Anthony | Effixx says: September 4, 2008 at 9:31 am All I gotta say is… Billy Cobbham. Kills it on this record. One of my favorite jazz/fusion drummers ever. 6 Alex / HeadUp says: September 4, 2008 at 10:26 am I was always partial to Miles’ early work, Plays for Lovers remains my favorite collection of tunes, but later and more well-known work like Bitches Brew is an undeniable cornerstone of jazz. That Miles in the Sky cover is excellent, I love the use of so many colors and abstract shapes– leaves a lot up to interpretation. I see his face in an almost Rorschach formation. 7 Jakub says: September 4, 2008 at 10:40 am What do you think the Bitches Brew font is? i love the water on that cover 8 Scott says: September 4, 2008 at 3:16 pm I think it’s Mostra but with a different “S”: http://www.fontshop.com/fonts/singles/mark_simonson/mostra_two_heavy/&sample_text=MILES%20DAVIS%20BITCHES&sample_size=36 more info here: http://www.typophile.com/node/33072 9 jozv says: September 12, 2008 at 8:36 am http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/a/ab/BitchesBrewGatefold.jpg 10 joe says: February 12, 2009 at 11:24 pm “Stuff” from Miles In The Sky has got to be one of my most favorite jams ever. Such a simple song, yet so completely bad ass. I think it was one of the first times, if not THE first time, Ron Carter played electric bass. Thanks for the covers…gotta go get my iPod.
