  • 4 1/2 stars: "The band mixes a bevy of new material with revisitations of back-catalog favorites. Sadly, this European jaunt would be the last of its kind to include the formidable talents and soul of founding member Ron "Pigpen" McKernan, who was in increasingly fragile health. Although few in number, his contributions to Europe '72 are among the most commanding not only of this release, but of his career."

Miles Davis
Milestones

  (Item #: davismilestones_1903) 

Our Price: $399.99

  • This original Columbia Mono Six-Eye pressing has STUNNING Triple Plus (A+++) sound from start to finish
  • This one has some condition issues (see below), so we're discounting it accordingly
  • The All Tube recording chain at their 30th Street studios allowed Columbia's engineers to do some amazing work back then - here's the proof
  • 5 stars: "What is immedately noticeable upon listening to Miles Davis' classic first -- and only -- album with his original sextet is how deep the blues presence is on it. Though it's true that the album's title cut is rightfully credited with introducing modalism into jazz, and defining Davis' music for years to come, it is the sole selection of its kind on the record. The rest is all blues in any flavor you wish you call your own."

  • With some fairly quiet passages of music, both sides play exceptionally well for this title - Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus
  • 5 stars: "His strongest collection since Tonight's the Night, its obvious antecedent was Bob Dylan's Bringing It All Back Home, and, as Dylan did, Young divided his record into acoustic and electric sides while filling his songs with wildly imaginative imagery."

Hence "Take Ten," a worthy sequel... There is not a single track here that isn't loaded with ingeniously worked out, always melodic ideas."

Charlie Watts and Bill Wyman provide a brawny frame for the intermeshing guitars of Richards and Brian Jones as the ensemble lovingly deliver some of their favourite shots of rhythm ‘n’ blues." - BBC
