Notes:
Sketches of Spain has been hailed by music critics as one of the best recordings of the Third Stream genre, which is described as a fusion of jazz, European classical, and world music styles. After Miles Davis and his wife Frances Davis attended a flamenco performance by dancer Roberto Iglesias, Davis was so inspired that he purchased every flamenco album he could find at a New York record shop.

The album is a pairing between Davis and arranger and composer Gil Evans, with whom he had collaborated before, for a set of compositions in the Spanish folk tradition. The first piece, taking up the majority of the first side, is the adagio movement from Concierto de Aranjuez. Both Evans and Davis agreed that the song had a "strong" melody. The next song, "Will o' the Wisp", is from the ballet titled El amor brujo. The third song, "The Pan Piper" is a traditional piece. The final two songs, "Saeta" and "Solea", are original compositions written by Evans.

The album has been ranked 358th on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list and according to Acclaimed Music, Sketches of Spain is the 393rd most ranked album on music critics' all-time lists. In response to comments that the album is something other than jazz, Davis replied, "It's music, and I like it."

Anything that this label, Jazz Images puts out is of fantastic quality and value. Slowly building my jazz collection and this has become my label of choice. This issue of the classic Miles album is impeccable.

Can anybody shed some light as to why this release has been blocked for sale? It doesn't mention it being a bootleg release and DOL seem to be fairly legit.

I use this album to test my systems, whenever I reconfigure something. For example, about three minutes into "Saeta", Miles is (largely) soloing when the entire ensemble re-enters. There is a striking bass resonance at that moment that (for me) is a kind of acid test of any recording of this album. This MSFL SACD/CD captures that as well as the original 1960 stereo LP, along with many other wonderful sonic moments (of course). I recommend this release without reservation and in the strongest terms possible. Even if you do not have an SACD player, the CD layer is worth it and will yield wonderful results.

The exciting contender against this version will for most be the MFSL cut and Ill be comparing them both.
What I find most brilliant about Grundmans work is his ability to push out performances into the room very effectively. Presence on his masterings are often top notch and this Classic version is no exception.
Soundwise its very crisp, clear and realistic. If I had to guess the most realistic portrayal of this album that there is. But there is one issue with it that holds it back, that being the very sharp instruments at play here. I found that some of Miles notes on The Pan Piper in particular were so hot and air cutting that I wanted to turn down the volume. This happens a few times across the album and it may have something to do with Classic cutting equipment which Ive heard can be a bit harsh in the high end.
On the other hand we have the MFSL pressing which is a bit more low end leaning as Krieg usually likes to master. While some critique his work on the Kind of Blue MFSL, here it may be a saving grace for those intense instrumentals.
Indeed, It is much more pleasant to listen to, but I find it to be losing out on that presence and realism compared to the Classic, opting instead for a more recessed and deep soundstage with slightly muffled performances. It does allow for more volume cranking however which may work favorably for some.
Its hard to say objectively which is the better version, it comes down very much to preference in this case.
Personally Id have to edge it for the Classic since I love the intimate sound, even if its possibly more compressed, but Ill probably keep the MFSL too for when I want a more relaxed and spacious listen.

Update:
Now also having a 200 gram edition I was fearing Classics usual trend of noisier vinyl than the 180 gram variants, but for once was pleasantly surprised with a near dead quiet playing surface. There are some ticks but given it being a used copy that is a main suspect for why.
Not only that but I recall the sharpness of Miles on Will O' The Wisp and The Pan Piper to be worse that I hear it now, maybe with some volume differences, Ill have to investigate further. But if its that case that the later plates used to press truncate that high end just a tad, then that is a real reason to favor the 200 gram in this case, although not to be mistaken, its still very bright at times.
At least the thicker cover is a nice improvement over the flimsy 90s original.

This 2-Eye Stereo reissue was pressed somewhere between 1967 and 1970 as “Nonbreakable” is not printed below CS 8271 on the label.

My copy of this release was a mess. Jumps, pops and skips all over. I’m usually a big fan of WaxTime but this copy was awful, fresh out of the shrink wrap! Music was incredible, though.
