Miles Davis Bitches Brew 180 Gram Pressing

December 11, 2011

I have been listening to Bitches Brew for about 30 years.  First as a vinyl, then as CD, and then as the CD set #6 in the Miles Davis complete sessions sets. But recently I picked up a 180 gram audiophile pressing at the Minnesota Record Show.  There was a lady there who had a boatload of vinyl re-releases for a reasonable price.

I have been sitting on this one for a couple of weeks and listened to it if for the first time tonight – wow does it sound dandy.  As many times as I have listened to this album it sounds fresh again.  This is one of my top ten albums of all time – so to hear it fresh again is a real privilege.

For those not familiar – this was Miles at his most innovative – reinventing jazz for the umpteenth time. This was Miles attempt at rock, funk and jazz.  This was Miles selling out.  Funny thing is that Miles did not sell out – he merely invented a  new genre – jazz rock.

I can’t even being to tell you how outstanding this album is – it is a certifiable classic.  And for me it is a thrill to hear it and feel it like it is the first time.  The fact that I am getting to listen to a clean analog version of this classic is beyond belief.  Long live vinyl!
