Offered for sale is a still sealed original U.S. stereo pressing of Miles Davis at Carnegie Hall by Miles Davis.
While the shrink wrap has been removed from the cover, the record is still sealed in the plastic inner sleeve.
About this copy: This copy of Miles Davis at Carnegie Hall is an original 1962 U.S. stereo pressing on the Columbia “6 eye” label that was discontinued shortly after the album’s release.
This label is unusual in that it does not have “CBS” at the top of the label, as nearly all first pressings of the album did.
The cover is VG+, with slight corner and edge wear, and a bit of ring wear on the front near the bottom edge.
The disc is sealed in the plastic inner sleeve and is presumably new and unplayed.
Matrix numbers are:
Side one: XSM-56273-1AB
Side two: XSM-56274-1G
The album is rechanneled stereo, rather than true stereo, though Columbia’s rechanneled stereo process was quite good compared to that of RCA or Capitol.
A beautiful copy of a terrific LP that’s hard to find on the original label.
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.
