Old talk[edit]

Roberts clearly says Innamoratu. Apparently, the transcriptions are imperfect. Another imperfection of the transcriptions floating on the Internet: he says lived, not live. Turn up the volume & listen, folks. Dogru144, 03:48, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

Wiktionary tells us what inamorata means. Maybe the narrator is saying inamorato, the feminine form of the word. Nowhere is there a word called inamoratu (to my knowledge). The song is called Inamorata (The narration is actually over the top of an excerpt of 'Its About That Time', but that's another matter). As such, I'll change it back to inamorata, unless someone can actually find the word inamoratu, and hear it clearly in the piece. 220.233.74.210 12:49, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

shouldn't this record be listed as: live recording/studio album? dogbeardbirdbeer 08:22, 6 August 2007 (UTC)dogs beard

Above comment was moved after the deleted [byDogbeard ...] Talk Page was restored. Dogru144 19:15, 6 August 2007 (UTC)


I'm not sure what this sentence fragment is trying to convey: "this black-is-live/white-is-evil vision should be replaced in the Black Power era." Toscaesque 02:10, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

Citation[edit]

Can someone please provide a specific page number, or other citation, for the following statement:

"Davis had originally intended the album to be a spiritual successor to Bitches Brew, but this idea was abandoned when it became obvious that Live-Evil was "something completely different"."

I cannot find anything resembling this quote anywhere in Miles' autobiography and it's driving me nuts. If nothing can be found then the citation should be removed. Mendali 11:44, 9 July 2009 (UTC)
