Miles Davis – Kind of Blue. 2020, Inspiration I just bought the LP of this legendary album, but I don’t have a record player. Every time I photograph with film, this is the soundtrack that’s playing in my mind. —Peter. Related

Oh, to relive one’s student days! However, I must say that I am listening to my vinyl records much more frequently nowadays. I’m glad that I didn’t sell my turntable. You should get another 🙂
I was 17 when I walked into a record store (remember those?) and stumbled upon Kind of Blue. It was the first jazz album I ever purchased, and it’s still my favourite.
Surprisingly, I’ve never listened to it on vinyl. My parents never owned a record player, and when I was old enough to buy albums, I bought cassettes (remember those?). Over the years, the medium changed to CDs (remember those?) and now digital.
But I’ve had this longing, all of these years, to listen to it on vinyl.
I guess I finally took the first step.
I will have to give this a listen. Thanks for the recommendation. I do like jazz a lot.
The most popular and (I think) best selling jazz album of all time. Brubeck’s “Time Out” (Take Five, Blue Rondo a la Turk, etc) is right up there also.
There are perhaps a dozen different vinyl pressings from the original thru the MoFi definitive remaster from a couple years ago. I hope you get your own player, take it to a friend’s, or even visit a quality hifi store in Toronto and ask to demo it on one of their systems. I’d be willing to bet that everybody working there will gather ’round to listen with you.
I don’t know about any tape versions, but my vinyl copy (and my daughter’s) is WAY better than my CD version. I’d love to hear your reaction when you get to listen to yours.

Greg, what an amazing idea!
I’m so glad to learn that you think the vinyl copy sounds better, that’s what my instincts are telling me. All of these years, I’ve held on to this mini-dream of buying a record player just because of this album.
