And another… complete Miles Davis on Columbia

Author: Colin | Published: 28/7/10

The 43 discs are:

“gorgeously repackaged in a custom-made, individually numbered limited edition trumpet case that includes symbolic memorabilia, with only 1955 (representing the year Davis signed to Columbia Records) box sets available worldwide.

Then comes the treasure of wonderful extras within the case:

  • A mouthpiece replica of exactly the ‘Gustat’ Heim 2 model used by Davis especially created by Kanstul.
  • A previously unseen and unavailable fine art lithograph by Davis, who was a dedicated and talented artist
  • A boutique-worthy T-shirt manufactured exclusively for this package by Trunk Ltd. showcasing the image of Davis playing his horn.”

Sorry to say you’re going to have to wait until 14th September 2010 to purchase this one – a snip at $1,199.99 (I particularly like the 99 cents…)

I’ll confess I’m a bit tempted by the Bitches Brew 40th Anniversary Collectors Edition at a mere $89.99 – which is daft as I already own the original CD edition, a double vinyl version and the Bitches Brew sessions box (much less essential than some of the other boxes e.g. the Jack Johnson and On The Corner sessions). So on second thoughts, I’ll pass…
