Simple enough - which of these awesome albums do you prefer?  I think both are pretty excellent stuff, but I still like Bitches Brew more.

It would have been more interesting to include more Miles' fusions.  Oddly enough, BB was the first one I got (box set version - the complete sessions) and BF is the latest.  A lot of titles sandwiched in between.

The box set version I have is really neat.  The outer slipcover is silk or at least silky.  Metallic aluminum (I think) blue spine is part of this huge booklet that also holds the discs.

I apologize if I made any of you fans of the album that don't have this version drool.

I picked the greatest Jazz album of all time. But both are great!

Although Big Fun is still good and comes much from the BB sessions, it's easy to see that the better tracks went into the BB and they waited almost three years to release BF

Big Fun is a collection of outtakes from sessions a year or more apart, but it contains three of Miles' greatest fusion contributions:  Great Expectations, Lonely Fire and Go Ahead John.  These three cuts should be absorbed only after getting to know In a Silent Way, Jack Johnson and Bitches Brew (not to mention Live-Evil and the Fillmore recordings).....those three cuts, among others, were cut and spliced to form portions of those classics.....Go Ahead John contains that smoking lead to Right Off that starts the Jack Johnson album....absolutely scorching! 

Miles' electric period is all a bunch of things taken from various sessions - really confusing even for old fans.
I like to feel the suspense when you're certain you know I am there.....

I'm surprised that i missed this poll before: Big Fun for sure.That and Get Up With It are particular faves of mine.  Bitches Brew is great too, but didn't connect as much with me.

Bitches brew!

I absolutely adore both, but I think I enjoy Big Fun more because Bitches Brew tends to become occasionally too avant.

I have never saw the appeal of Bitches Brew, so Big Fun for me

Bitches Brew is Miles' best but Big Fun is still big fun.
