Offered for sale is an original 1962 Japanese mono pressing of Miles Davis at Carnegie Hall by Miles Davis, including the rare original obi.
About this copy: This copy of Miles Davis at Carnegie Hall is a 1962 Japanese mono pressing on the orange Columbia label.
The cover is VG+ with slight discoloration from age and a couple of minor corner bends. The obi is VG+ with slight discoloration and a small (1 cm) tear at the top edge.
This LP was issued without an insert.
The disc is VG+ with a couple of very light scuffs on each side, but no significant marks. There are no spindle marks on the labels; the record has likely only been played a couple of times. It does play with slight surface noise.
A beautiful copy of a very rare classic jazz LP and one that is nearly impossible to find complete.
Background: Released in 1962, Miles Davis at Carnegie Hall was Davis’ first live album for Columbia. While the label adopted stereo fairly early, this recording was originally issued only in mono and rechanneled stereo.
In 1998, Columbia/Legacy reissued Miles Davis at Carnegie Hall as a double-disc set that contained all of the music performed at the concert from May 19, 1961. Davis is captured with his transitional small combo featuring Hank Mobley, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb, as well as with the Gil Evans Orchestra. It was one of only two concerts Davis and Evans performed together, and that alone makes the album necessary for collectors, but the music itself is terrific.
