Background: Released in 1955, Vol. 1 contains tracks recorded in 1952-1953 gave Vol.1 a 4 star review:

Miles Davis’ recordings of 1951-1954 tend to be overlooked because of his erratic lifestyle at the time and because they pre-dated his first classic quintet. Although he rarely recorded during this era, what he did document was often quite classic. The two sessions here are among the earliest hard bop recordings and would indirectly influence the modern mainstream music of the ’60s.
