The Complete Columbia Album Collection by Miles Davis on CD
Deluxe 71 disc (70 CDs + DVD) box set that contains 52 single CD and double CD albums (which includes the previously unreleased full-length audio version of his 1970 Isle Of Wight performance) plus a bonus DVD: Miles Davis Quintet Live In Europe '67. Here are two separate European concert performances by the groundbreaking 'second great quintet,' filmed in Stockholm and Karlsruhe, Germany, October and November 1967, respectively. This DVD represents the only video of this Miles Davis Quintet lineup ever to be officially commercially released. Along with the discs comes a generous 250-page book whose centerpiece is an 11,000 word biographical essay by Frdric Goaty, the most in-depth liner notes ever included in any Miles Davis package. The essay is complemented by brief annotations written by Franck Bergerot, covering every single one of the 52 albums and the DVD. The cornerstones of the box set are the studio and live albums that were released during his tenure at the label, more than 40 titles that he recorded in the 1950s, '60s, '70s and '80s.
