I've never been able to find a great recording of Miles Davis - Kind of Blue. The opening notes sound so distorted and overly saturated. SO, do you think it was originally recorded this way? It sounds like his trumpet is too close to the mike. I have 3 versions and they all sound like that. It is, however, one of my favorite LPs.

 

Happy downloading and listening. I just downloaded this CD: http://www.classicsonline.com/catalogue/product.aspx?pid=1960980

 

It is incredible on my WA22 with RCA 6AS7, CBS 6SN7, and Amperex 5AR4

 

 

Ooh, new music! :normal_smile : Will check out Miss Tasmin later this evening (post football :rolleyes:). I'm trying to cut snack purchases next week to afford a new CD: Camille Thomas et Béatrice Berrut

"Kind Of Blue" - Unfortunately, the distortion appears to be original, whatever happened during that session. As I understand from reading the liner notes of Bill Evans (an excerpt below), there were no practices. While I find that aforementioned passage troubling with each listen, that the group bravely lived in the moment and went for it, leaves me with strong admiration.

 

"Miles conceived these settings only hours before the recording dates and arrived with sketches which indicated to the group what was to be played. Therefore, you will hear something close to pure spontaneity in these performances. The group had never played these pieces prior to the recordings and I think without exception the first complete performance of each was a "take."

I don't think that is distortion. I think Miles just missed the note.

:thumb: A resounding "Thanks" from around the way... down I-5! Since my team already lost :mad: (Oakland Raiders), I may even slide the KEFs into position and watch the game with no volume while music fills the air. :wink:

If one truly understood the era, not only did some performers routinely miss notes, but whole performances... while being on stage! But I'm not talkin'. :D

RCA 6AS7G prices sure have gone up lately

:rolleyes:

Actually that particular seller has been trying to get that sort of price for RCA 6AS7G's literally for years.  I wonder if he ever actually does...
