Get Up With It

Miles Davis • 2LP


“Get Up With It” is a compilation album by Miles Davis. Released in 1974 by Columbia in the US and CBS in Europe, it compiles songs Davis had recorded in sessions between 1970 and 1974, including those for the studio albums “Jack Johnson” (1971) and “On The Corner” (1972). The result is a highly original album, incorporating numerous styles of music genres for over two hours.

“He Loved Him Madly” was recorded by Davis as his tribute to then-recently deceased Duke Ellington. British musician Brian Eno cited it as an influence on his work in ambient music in the liner notes to his 1982 release “On Land”. One track, “Honky Tonk”, was recorded in 1970 with musicians such as John McLaughlin and Herbie Hancock. “Red China Blues” had been recorded in 1972 before “On The Corner”, while “Rated X” and “Billy Preston” were recorded later that year with the band heard on “In Concert”. The remaining tracks were from 1973 and 1974 sessions with his current band, including Pete Cosey.

The album is often regarded as Miles Davis’ greatest work of his fusion period. Reviewing for Rolling Stone in 1975, Stephen Davis applauded Davis’ adventurousness and direction of his rhythm band, who he called a “who’s who of 70’s jazz-rock”. Alternative Press published a review hailing it as essential: “the overlooked classic of psychedelic soul and outlandish improv, representing the high water mark of Davis’ experiments in the fusion of rock, funk, electronica and jazz”.

For sale is a perfect original European copy in a gatefold sleeve, sounding absolutely amazing.
