About this deal

All inserts are printed on high quality art board and include a track and information sheet for each reel, and a technical specification and quality control sheets for each reel, which even going as far as including the original Recording the Masters tape serial number labels. There are around 1,000 copies a year coming to auction, that would be 1% of total, not an unreasonable ballpark figure.

I’ve been toying with some “Collector’s Guide” style postings for my blog and one of the things I quickly realised is that I’d need to keep each one’s scope narrow and precise to avoid months of effort. It opens with the effortlessly cool track ‘So What’ and had a big influence across pop and rock artists through the 1960s and 1970s. So much has been said and written about Miles Davis' Kind Of Blue, it's virtually impossible to summarize all the necessary info to the length of this page.

It may seem ironic that the biggest-selling album in jazz history is such a subtle and understated beast - perhaps less so when you consider it as a sublime masterpiece of subtlety and understatement. If you haven’t had your fill of my ramblings here, I also made a video of my thoughts for YouTube after writing this blog. That is 30 years of vinyl sales, guess an average 10,000 copies each year would mean total 300,000 vintage copies on vinyl.Given his gargantuan recorded output, Miles Davis seldom abandoned a conceptual vision in the studio, particularly after the turn of the 1960s. Or by affirming that, every year, it sells tens of thousands of copies more than five decades after its original release. Kevin Gray: “Columbia used PAL and PBL prefixes for side 1 and 2, and A and B suffixes for the Santa Maria, Ca. I have a standard cd, a hi res copy and a Japanese cd all 3 have some kind of annoying distortion in different parts of the saxophone.

We've graced this first-time-ever 2LP edition of this musical masterpiece with a gatefold sleeve with additional liner notes. Hi Steve, I’ve now taken a more systematic look at the font and title setting associated with matrix codes – at the time of writing it was an afterthought and an “impression” which wasn’t as accurate as I now find. Although this session is not as structured as the three-horn efforts of the Jazztet, there is a balance between blowing and Golson's writing that makes for a felicitous blend, whether on Golson's own "My Blues House," Gene Krupa's old burner, "Drum/Boogie," or Jerome Kern's "Yesterdays. e. the ‘raw’ recording, before any mastering at all), what’s important to understand is that the ‘raw’ 3-track (aka multi-track) session tape is not yet ‘finished’ as such: the final mix to stereo completes the creative process of the team at the time. A limited number of lacquers/ stampers were used in pressing promos, Side 1 and Side 2 were drawn from different pairings, not symmetrical (not 1A/1A) nor sequential (not 1A/1B).

Columbia/Legacy say they are currently selling around 20,000 a year on vinyl, as part of the “vinyl revival – the record everyone should own”. The slow, spacious bass and piano and the aching trumpet again refer to the forthcoming ‘Sketches of Spain’ album. The 1D/1AE is a common combination, which suggests part of the big commercial release, which would be early rather than late.

A little icing on the cake, the Columbia two-eye KoB has a degree of chronology, so there are early and later two-eye. Apparently, the only channel fed through reverb plates was the centre channel, so any reverb was on this channel only and therefore depending on how that was mixed, it would considerably affect the overall sense of ambiance.
