Kind Of Blue - 1st - DG - WOL

MILES DAVIS Kind Of Blue (Beautiful & historic 1959 US first stereo issue of the undisputed classic 5-track LP, on the deep groove 'six eye' Columbia label. Towering well above its peers, an album to end all jazz albums! This is the very rare original US pressing with uncorrected speed [1AG/1AJ matrices], the wrong track sequence for the second side [Flamenco Sketches first, All Blues second], & Cannonball Adderley's name misspelled as 'Adderly' on the cover. A must have for the Milescollector & fascinating to compare to subsequent issues. See 'more info' for condition details... CS8163)

Condition : -

The pasted picture sleeve has survived over half a century in stunning condition. The colours are still bright & vivid & both sides remain clean, with clearly legible text all over. There are no splits or writing on the cover & the back panel remains a fantastic off white, remarkable for a US cover of this vintage & as good as it gets!

The matrix numbers in the trail off are machine stamped 'XSM47326-1AG' & 'XSM47327-1AJ', denoting a first issue with uncorrected speed and track sequence.

This one previous owner copy has the original owner's name penned boldly in black marker, unobtrusive to the print.

The heavyweight vinyl is super clean & plays like a dream with minimal surface noise & no distortion. The vinyl remains in Excellent condition, showing few signs of play & we can not recommend this highly enough. Simply wonderful... akin to the Holy Gail, the Grand Canyon, the Mona Lisa... pure aural ambrosia.
