This is not only one of his
rarest, but widely and genuinely recognized as probably two or three of Miles’
(and Mingus’!) finest works. Truly a masterpiece. Miles' interaction with
Mingus is to die for. And, lest we
forget – the two hardheads nearly had a fistfight in the studio while recording
this album, but you would never be able to figure it out by listening to this
gorgeous, blue and moody, music.

unless otherwise noted, ALL records are graded visually, and NOT play-graded!;
we grade records under the strong,
diffuse room light or discrete sunlight)
WE GRADE THE VINYL AS EXCELLENT.
This is one of those albums that are somewhat difficult to grade. It is somewhere
between VG++ and NEAR MINT, just a notch below NEAR MINT. A few light
abrasions ARE visible, but they are extremely shallow, superficial and only moderately visually distracting
(nothing significant).For the most part, the vinyl looks impeccable without any
MAJOR visual flaws or imperfections. Much of the original luster is intact, and
the vinyl shines and sparkles almost like new.
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!
Of course, this is a full-bodied ANALOG recording, and not an inferior,
THE COVER IS NICE --- ABOUT
EXCELLENT OR VERY GOOD+++.
The following flaws or
imperfections are noted on the cover:
Cover has some light ring wear (nothing significant); On the
scale from 1 to 10 (1 being the least, and
10 being the most severe), we assess the severity of ring wear as 2
(front side) and 3 (back side).
Cover has a partially split spine (between 2 and 4
inches / 5 to 10 centimeters); This
split seam was delicately taped by the previous owner with a piece of transparent
scotch tape (THE REPAIR IS VIRTUALLY INVISIBLE)
Back cover has circular tarnish (grayish, dust-covered
sections, which closely follow the contour of the record), probably caused by friction or by rubbing
against other covers during the storage. The tarnish is similar in appearance
to a common ring wear, but, UNLIKE ring wear, these grayish areas may be
possible to clean up with a minor effort and with a right cleansing solution.
NO OTHER IMPERFECTIONS
ON THE COVER:
No cut-out (drill) holes.
No cut-out corners
No saw-marks or indents
