Offered for sale is a still sealed Japanese pressing of Milestones by Miles Davis, including the original obi.
About this copy: This copy of Milestones is a 1984 Japanese pressing on the CBS/Sony label of an album that was originally released in 1958.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.
The wrap is fully intact with no rips, tears, or holes. There is a hype sticker (in Japanese) promoting the then-current “Miles Digital Mastering Series.”
A nice copy of a classic LP.
Background: Released in 1958, Milestones was the third album that Miles Davis recorded for Columbia.
The album did not chart.
What is immediately noticeable upon listening to Miles Davis’ classic first — and only — album with his original sextet is how deep the blues presence is on it. Though it’s true that the album’s title cut is rightfully credited with introducing modalism into jazz, and defining Davis’ music for years to come, it is the sole selection of its kind on the record. … The album’s closer is Monk’s “Straight, No Chaser,” which became a signature tune for the sextet even when Garland and Jones left to be replaced by Bill Evans and Jimmy Cobb, and later Evans by Wynton Kelly.
