About this copy: This copy of Miles in the Sky is an original 1968 U.S. pressing on the Columbia 360° Sound label.

The cover is VG++, with trace wear at the corners.

The disc is still sealed in the plastic inner sleeve and is presumably new and unplayed.   It’s a fairly early pressing, with 2A/2A stampers.

A beautiful copy of a classic Miles Davis LP that is rarely found in this condition.

Background: Released in 1968, Miles in the Sky was the fifteenth album Davis recorded for Columbia.  The album didn’t make the main Billboard album charts, but reached #5 on the Top Jazz Albums chart.

Allmusic.com gave Miles in the Sky a 3 1/2 star review:

With the 1968 album Miles in the Sky, Miles Davis explicitly pushed his second great quintet away from conventional jazz, pushing them toward the jazz-rock hybrid that would later become known as fusion. Here, the music is still in its formative stages, and it’s a little more earth-bound than you might expect, especially following on the heels of the shape-shifting, elusive Nefertiti. … Intriguing, successful jams in many respects, but even with the notable additions of electric instruments, and with the deliberately noisy “Country Son,” this is less visionary than its predecessor and feels like a transitional album — and, like many transitional albums, it’s intriguing and frustrating in equal measures.
