Dark Magus is a live album by jazz artist Miles Davis recorded at Carnegie Hall in New York City on March 30, 1974. The album was released in 1977 exclusively in Japan as a double-LP by Columbia Records, and released in 1997 in the United States in a double-CD format as part of the comprehensive Miles Davis reissue series by Legacy Records. In 2001, Q magazine named it as one of the 50 Heaviest Albums of All Time. In the liner notes of the CD reissue Dave Liebman confirms that he never heard the titles that were given to the songs by the label before its release. He refers to the "Moja Pts. 1 & 2" as "Turnaround" (actually more commonly referred to as "Turnaroundphrase") and "Tune in 5", respectively. "Wili Pts. 1 & 2" is mentioned as "Funk" and "For Dave" respectively. "Tatu Pt. 2" and "Nne Pt. 1" are actually versions of "Calypso Frelimo" and "Ife" according to Liebman (although the latter bears very little resemblance to the studio recording from Big Fun). 2011 saw the reissue of this double album on 180 gram vinyl on the Label: Four Men With Beards #812..... now being distributed thru City Hall Records.
