The Miles Davis Quintet underwent innumerable lineup and personnel changes during the decade and a half they were active, but most jazz scholars agree that one of his greatest configurations was his "Second Great Quintet", an astounding lineup which featured Wayne Shorter on saxophone, Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, Tony Williams on drums, and of course Davis himself.

In 1966, Davis released the album Miles Smiles on Columbia Records, which would be the second of five albums hed record with this configuration, and is now considered one of his greatest efforts. A jazz traditionalist for much of his career, Miles Smiles astounded critics, who were hard up to categorize the hybrid of bop and free jazz that his quintet had put forth, which was full of free-roaming improvisation, eccentric time signatures, and progressive modal and chordal harmonies. Nonetheless, it was widely praised for its instrumental mastery, its innovative compositions, and the chemistry between the band members

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!

180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP

These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectibles, commanding a higher price.


Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
