Nice one. Good call on supporting the local record shop too.

Saw them live for the first time ever at Madison Square Garden last week, fantastic show. This is their best, most complete album IMO. Recorded to tape and pressed at 45rpm, it sounds monstrous (that's a good thing)! Rock on.

While this is well recorded and played, I don’t think it quite lives up to the hype, at least not for the $40 I paid at the California Audio Show.

Last month, fifty years prior,.. "July 22, 2018 Miles In The Sky, released July 22, 1968, showcases that second great Miles Davis quintet in bloom, with Davis, Hancock, Carter, Williams and tenor saxophonist Wayne Shorter experimenting with evolving soul and funk influences, from Hancock’s electric piano licks (imposed upon him by Miles) to George Benson’s electric guitar parts on “Paraphernalia.” These four electric (and electrifying) passages further anticipated Miles’ full embrace of new directions by the decade’s end—further proving the genius of Miles Davis, now and forever.
