A Couple Of Miles is an unreleased instrumental recorded on 26 December 1985 (the same day as Can I Play With U?, two days before Madrid, Breathless, Slaughterhouse, U Just Can't Stop, Run Amok, 12 Keys, High Calonic and Mobile), at Sunset Sound, Hollywood, CA, USA, with tenor and baritone saxophone overdubs by Eric Leeds on 30 December 1985 (the same day as recording U Gotta Shake Something, Voodoo Who, Most Strongest Whiskey and Damn).

It was intended as a tribute to Miles Davis, but unlike Can I Play With U?, it was not intended for him to add to.

The track was included as the fourth and final track on the 22 January 1986 configuration of The Flesh EP (to be credited to The Flesh), which was ultimately abandoned.

Eric Leeds later considered the track for his album Times Squared, but opted not to use it.
