What we have here is Jazz equivalent of the Grand Canyon. The album which, for the next four decades, pretty much defined everything that's spontaneous, improvisational , modal and otherwise genuine in music. This music truly has no equivalents, peers or points of reference in modern music, whether before or after its conception. Word has it that Duane Allman played nothing by "Kind of Blue" for many days and months on end, and the list of Jazz musicians profoundly affected by its spontaneity, mood, gentle blue tinge and supreme musical competence (to put it mildly) goes on and on and on. Plus, how many times do you get to hear the interplay between Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Bill Evans and Cannonball Adderley - all assembled in one place?. This is not music, this is pure aural ambrosia. The Jazz’ greatest album was beset from its inception by the mastering problems, and experts claim that it is off by a fraction of the note, due to the fact that it was mastered at the wrong speed (a moot point). This is the mega-rare original deep groove stereo pressing!!!

·       CONDITION:

 

·       RECORD

 

(IMPORTANT NOTE: unless otherwise noted, ALL records are graded visually, and NOT play-graded!; we grade records under the strong, diffuse room light or discrete sunlight)

 

(a)          WE GRADE THE VINYL AS STRONG NEAR MINT. The original luster is very much intact, and the vinyl shines and sparkles almost like new.

 

(b)          The record is pressed on a beautiful, thick, inflexible vinyl, which was usually used for the first or very early pressings. Usually, the sound on such thick vinyl pressings is full-bodied, vivid, and even dramatic. Do not expect to obtain such a majestic analog sound from a digital recording!

 

(c)           Stereo pressing of this title is much rarer, and by far more preferable to its mono counterpart. The mix is more graphic, the sound resolution more precise, and the channel separation (which does not exist on mono version) adds a whole new dimension to the music. Also, the stereo mixes are (by definition) somewhat different than on the mono version. We estimate that mono copies of this album outnumber stereo copies by a ratio of at least 5:1.

 

(d)          The record is STILL in its original inner, perforated plastic baggy, which has - apparently with success - shielded the record from the harmful impact of elements over many years!

 

(e)           Of course, this is a full-bodied ANALOG recording, and not an inferior, digital recording!!!
