    I have the box set, but I needed this on vinyl. Why?

    It'll do till they get hip and release the Complete Sessions on LP.

    I mean ALL the Complete Sessions. From Milestones to On The Corner. Including Cellar Door.

    This is a bit on the cheap. The jacket is thin. The vinyl is thin. The profits are high.

    It sounds alright, but don't spend your rent on ridic scalper prices.

    I would've swapped 'Jabali' or 'The Hen' out for 'One and One' which is a hectic jam.

    One day an extended cut of 'Rated X' has to happen. The world needs at least 15 minutes of that tension.

      I just received my sealed copy. The paper inner sleeve created so much static. Before the initial spin, I gave the vinyl a good cleaning and transferred it to a MoFi anti static sleeve. My copy is very quiet and the blue vinyl is flat.

      This album is nice because I can’t afford the expensive OTC box set. The soundstage is decent. Nice amount of bass, but the treble needed to be increased a tad.

      Overall, I’m happy with this addition to my collection. Very thankful for the affordable $27 price tag as well. A nice companion piece to ‘On The Corner’

        Sounds fantastic, might not be your go to jazz album, but you can appreciate the music and enjoy the quality sound this record produces.

          Big gamble if you purchase this. These stupid colored vinyl releases look cool but they are often crappy quality. Mine has an edge warp that makes a soft thump for most (if not all) of the first song on side A. I haven't gotten to side B yet. The sound other than the warp is okay. It would have been much better in black vinyl. I don't know where it was pressed but they suck. Whoever does quality control has neither quality or control. I rarely want to buy modern pressed records but I like Miles Davis so I did.

            There's definitely some tracks from the complete sessions I would have opted for over these, but fun to have. My copy was in good shape.

              Love the tunes, but the pressing quality is mediocre at best. My copy has some edge warp (can hear it over the first few revolutions) and is still a bit crackly/noisy even after a careful wet clean with a RCM. I get more nervous buying RSD titles every year... It's a total gamble as to what you'll get in terms of quality, with a few labels excepted.

                My copy is flat and sounds flawless after an initial wet cleaning. Fantastic stuff here, money well spent.

                  I bought this because On the Corner is my favorite Miles album and I’d never heard this before. I have mixed feelings but overall positive. It’s actually far more accessible than the original album which is both a positive and a negative. I was disappointed that it didn’t have any of the crazy jingle bell shakers, aggressively unique rhythm patterns and other exotic sounds of the original album as I was looking forward to more of that. On the other hand, this is a really groovy, badass, enjoyable listen in its own right It’s something I can just throw on that won’t alienate people, but will still be a really cool, unique vibe. It’s the version of On the Corner my parents would enjoy. As for the pressing, mine is pretty much perfect, I’ve had Miles Record Store Day albums that were warped in the past but this one was totally fine.

                    I'm always confused about posts that state "horrendous, or terrible, or scratched at delivery" this is a flawless sky blue with sky blue sound. it's amazing. lift up on your paper sleeves first on both sides, and never pull without releasing the paper hold the shrink process causes.

                      Fantastic music, straight fire! Absolutely horrendous pressing. The soundstage is just flat and the pressing quality is absolute junk. I pulled (and I mean pulled) the record out of the printed *paper* sleeve to find little scratches and scuffs everywhere. Shame on you, Sony.
