It can most likely be interpreted as a play on the term-

&quot;Witches' brew&quot;

Are you familiar with the term witch? We take it to mean a woman with
supernatural powers and generally thought of as somewhat evil in
nature.

We used to have a bit of fun in the old days, burning them alive or
tieing them to wooden rafts and throwing them down rivers to see if
they lived and such. Before the days of political correctness set in.

A 'witches brew' is a batch of weird roots, flowers, herbs, animal
remains, and just about anything they would place in a boiling, large
metal cooking pot, for evil or supernatural purposes. To cast spells,
ward of demons, etc...

Think of making an evil soup, full of weird ingredients, in the old
typw metal pots, where burning wood is placed under the cooking pot to
heat it.

Whoever thought of that title, made a clever play on words, buy
substituting &quot;bitch&quot; in stead of &quot;witch.&quot;

The term &quot;bitch&quot; we often use as slang to describe a moody, ill
tempered, ill mannered, often power hungry, type woman.

Think Hillary Clinton for example. ;-)

oh Thank you very much,winston!

I think I've understood it.
So,generally speaking ,here &quot;bitches&quot; indicates women who brew their evil
soup to put spell on others(same as Sorceress or Enchantress [I just
remembered another Miles'album named &quot;Socerer&quot; and that the Black Woman on
the Cover of &lt;live/Evil&gt; must somewhat resemble the proto type of

The pun on &quot;witch's brew&quot; is correct. However, &quot;bitch&quot; is also a common
slang term for a musician who is really really really good. At least it
used to be in my younger days. Kind of like &quot;bad&quot; meaning good.

If someone was a &quot;bitch,&quot; it meant they played exceptionally well -- Good
enough to scare the competition.

So, to make it clear for a non-native English speaker, when Miles called the
album &quot;Bitch's Brew,&quot; he was saying it was a brew of music from best
musicians while making word play with the old phrase &quot;witch's brew.&quot;

Please disregard my previous misspelling of the title.

Actually, now that I've looked up the correct title, it is in fact &quot;Bitches
Brew&quot; and not &quot;Bitches' Brew&quot; or &quot;Bitch's Brew.&quot; Thus, it is not the
incorrect singular possessive that I first thought. In fact, since there is
no apostrophe, it is not possessive.

What that means is that the term &quot;brew&quot; becomes a verb rather than a noun.
So &quot;Bitches Brew&quot; is kind of like &quot;Women Cook&quot; or &quot;Musicians Play,&quot; and
therefore is an active present-tense form.

However, the meaning of &quot;Bitches,&quot; as a reference to exceptionally skilled
musicians still applies. It kind of means &quot;Super-Good Musicians Play,&quot; as
if playing music was a way of &quot;brewing&quot; like brewing beer or stew. And of
course the word-play on the phrase &quot;Witches' Brew&quot; still applies too.

I think Ann Coulter's hot!

My guess is her constant &quot;bitching&quot; comes from a lack of sexual satisfaction
and disappointment in the men she liaisons with. It is good evidence that
the &quot;elephants&quot; are elephants in name only.

Were I not married, I'd be delighted to provide her with the satisfying
sexual experience she appears to be in need of. Apparently, the diminutive
sexual abilities of the men in her political party have left her in a
dissatisfied and unhappy state. Perhaps it's the repressed homosexuality of
those overly concerned with the sexual orientation of others that renders
her male cohorts so unable to perform.

Should Ann Coulter ever choose to liaison with real men, as there appears to
be a shortage of such in her political camp, I'm sure her angry and
dissatisfied demeanor would be replaced by the happy glow of satisfaction.

As further evidence of my hypothesis, we might consider the example of Mary
Matalin and James Carville. Whilst Ms. Matalin retains her political
affiliation, she obviously had to turn outside of her political party to
obtain sexual satisfaction and thus married Mr. Carville.

am a basically a socialist and I bet all my axes and my gear that I
am way more liberal than you can ever hope to be. ;-)
------------------------------------------------------------ -------------------------

I thought so, but I still had to include a bitch list from the brain
stem party. These days, you might not want to call yourself a liberal,
though. Consider:

social conservatives are socialists too but don't think they are.

Libertarians are basically anarchists, but they believe the state
should wither away, like Marx.

Conservatives strive for single party government and denoucing their
political enemies as traitors, but historically, those governments are
usually socialist, and national socialists are right wing and marxist
socialists are the other.

I have no idea what defines liberalism today. The left wingers today
seem to be neo conservative chicken hawks and libertarians. They preach
small government, but it just gets bigger and bigger and is never paid
for.

The democrats used to be the war party. They actually won a few. When
they were voted out of office, time after time the republicans cut and
ran. They've lost every conflict they were ever involved in, but always
outspend the democrats.

They trade and outsource work and defense manufacturing and bank with a
communist nuclear power that presents itself to the US as an enemy yet
claim to be patriotic. I'll never figure that one out.

Mercantilism, laissez faire, big government, states' rights, eminent
domain, strict constructionalism, constitutional amendments, seven of
them proposed, none of this stuff falls along party or lib/con lines
anymore.

The so-called 'liberals' seem to be the true conservatives.

They are the ones who are NOT interested in instigating chronic social
upheaval and radical social experimentation legislation done by any
means available to suit a small minority, but instead seem to be
interested in upholding social values instilled after the great
depression and Kennedy's assassination.

They tend to favor balanced trade, fiscal responsibility, social
security, affordable and avaliable health plans, equitable taxation and
a government big enough to protect them and provide basic services,
just like there was a constitution or this was a democracy or
something.

It seems to boil down to greed and hate or government, take your pick.

ref albumcover art...there is much of it on the web. There are sites
with photos of 60's music
posters from many venues. Much of that artwork was very interesting (to

Yeah, I don't think my Funky Wagnall's has the version of bitch as it
applies to musicians. It is, after all, a 1974 Edition.

Even hyperdictionary.com doesn't have the jazz slang meaning listed. It was
quite common though, at least for a while.

&quot;Bling&quot; isn't in there either. Lately though, anyone who watches celebrity
news knows what &quot;bling&quot; means. Personally, I hate the word &quot;bling.&quot; Using
the word &quot;bling&quot; is like saying &quot;I am a target-marketed zombie who watches a
lot of TV and is very concerned about the romantic lives of celebrities.&quot;
Unfortunately, Mrs. Me occasionally watches that sort of thing, so I've come
to learn the meaning of the word &quot;bling.&quot;

Speaking of words we hate, I vote for the word &quot;clearly&quot;. Seems like
everyone uses the word &quot;clearly&quot; these days when explaining something
thats not clear at all. I think &quot;bling&quot; means jewelry doesn't it?

Anyway, heres the Wikipedia on Bitches Brew:

Are you familiar with the www.antiwar.com website?

Some of their &quot;homegrown&quot; commentators are way out there, like
Justin Raimondo, but still it's a good source for international news
and Iraq War op/ed stuff.

Interesting thing is, the producers of the site consider themselves to
be conservatives and libertarians.

Sure, I understand some believe in paganism or &quot;white witchcraft,&quot;
etc... Some very good people probably follow this stuff and are
sincere about it.

I was mostly referring to the classic definitions and stereotypes...

Additionally, since it's spelled &quot;Bitches Brew&quot;, I believe it is a further
play on words in that it is an action, not a subject. Like &quot;these bitches
really brew&quot;, with &quot;brew&quot; being a verb, not a noun.

Since we have now moved entirely off the topic of music and entered the
realm of English . . .

I TOTALLY AGREE!

I worked as a legal secretary for a long time. One of the first attorneys I
worked for said the exact same thing -- He was a brilliant old fart and a
former musician who had been a singer and arranger for Tony Martin and
Debbie Reynolds.

We used to joke around a lot that as soon as you saw the word &quot;clearly&quot; in a
Motion you knew that opposing counsel was on shaky ground.





&gt;
&gt; Speaking of words we hate, I vote for the word &quot;clearly&quot;. Seems like
&gt; everyone uses the word &quot;clearly&quot; these days when explaining something
&gt; thats not clear at all. I think &quot;bling&quot; means jewelry doesn't it?
&gt;
&gt; Anyway, heres the Wikipedia on Bitches Brew:

References to &quot;common sense&quot; always indicate that you're about to heaqr a

Quasi-onomatopoetic, isn't it? :P Like the sound glimmering jewelry
makes in cartoons.
