Lol, I know 'So What' is as a popular track/song from Davis. However, I am more of a 'Blue In Green' fan. :) What made me curious was that in this thread, Head-Fi Contributor LFF recommends the 'Legacy Edition'. He states that this edition has "FULL dynamic range of the album with minimal processing." I was just curious if it was sonically different than the version that I currently own.
Also, thanks for the recommendation of Art Pepper. I have not heard the album before, but doing some quick preview listening on iTunes, and it sounds great! I might just take you up on that recommendation and go for it instead! :)

Kind of Blue (Legacy Edition) offers the complete studio sessions on 2 CDs, including false starts, alternate takes and a 17-minute 1960 live version of "So What."
So if that material interests you.....
I really just wanted to know if there was a better release of the album that was worth grabbing. I am indeed happy with mine, but I wouldn't mind going for a better remaster.
I am also wondering if there is a 24-Bit version of the album out there?
