It seems the 1959 stereo pressings of this album had so many label variations. I assume that whatever is closest to the label of the demo version (, with the tracks on Side B wrongly interchanged, but red in color instead of white, would be the earliest pressings. Some 1959 stereo pressings had the title "Kind of Blue" occupying one line only on both sides (like in the promo; I assume these are the earlier 1959 pressings), others had Side A with the title on two lines while Side B has it on one line but the track listing sequence corrected (like the one pictured on this page), while others have both sides with the title on two lines. If I'm going to spend a sizeable amount on a 1959 pressing, I might as well get an earlier one, in the original Columbia plastic inner sleeve. Any thoughts?

I have a copy of this.
But the A Side runout is XSM47326-1E, the B side runout is XSM47327-1K.
Other parts of the vinyl and sleeve is totally identical.
This is the first pressing?

Interesting .

In Vinyl1954´s comment I got a little confused when reading ; "t is best to use Columbia EQ curve on the photo stage" . What is photo stage ?
And what is the truth regarding the mentioned EQ-curves ?

This is one of the most renowned Jazz masterpieces.

However, as most of its original releases (not the later re-issues) were pressed with Columbia EQ curve, in order to hear the full glory of this LP, it is best to use Columbia EQ curve on the photo stage to replay it. If one uses the standard RIAA EQ curve to replay it, it's bass will sound fat and undefined, and the rich texture which was presented on the LP will be lost.
