Shopping For Records #16 (Reprise): The Only Music You’ll Have Time To Hear Is That Of Miles Davis Pt. II...
Miles Davis’s 71 CD set, The Complete Columbia Album Collection, is out in time for Christmas and exclusively available at Amazon. As I wrote back in September, I believe this set to be overkill, but it’s still impressive and beautifully packaged and guaranteed to be an overwhelming listen.
It does, however, demonstrate exactly how amazing Miles Davis was. How many musicians can claim to be so prolific as to boast this many works of pure genius? The man was an extraordinary gift. Whether Columbia/Legacy honor the artist with this release, or see it as an opportunity to capitalize on Davis when other labels are so quick to do the same, these albums will always be something to treasure.
