Perhaps my favorite Miles song...I have to vote for it.

Neither Stern Smile

By the time the Get Up With It came out Miles Davis had changed the course of music more times than he could remember; I guess he had run out of room for maneuver? 

The Soft Machine has never been able to capture my attention; I have one of their albums (somewhere) .. or is it two? but I can't remember where it is, or what it's called (#-something?), or what the cover looks like.

Miles Davis, easily. A brilliant track from a brilliant album.

Rated X is something else altogether, and a great tune, but I actually prefer Soft Machine this time, which is really strange since I am such a big fan of Miles and have only heard one song from the Softs that I like - this one, Chloe and the Pirates.

"Chloe and the Pirates", one of my favourite tracks from my favourite Soft Machine album. Big smile

Although I dearly love both Miles and The Soft Machine, I can't get into this stage of Miles' career.  On the other hand, I dig every song on the Six album.  Chloe and the Pirates it is.

Soft Machine. 'Six' is one of their best.
