As a total volume of music, these records achieve an organic unity by growing and dissolving into one another, even as they might individually seem to you disjointed or unclear or even disembodied. If so, you shouldn’t feel alone. This may be some of the most confusing music ever made. … Miles Davis aspired to be the sort of successful artist who could make the ensembles and records and concerts that he wanted, when he wanted, such that he didn’t particularly have to worry about record-label marketing, audiences and critics; such that a lot of people might listen and perhaps be taken aback or love it, but he would not necessarily care because it was not his job to care, only to keep experimenting.

What's Included

Included Icon
Electrified Podcast
Hosted by executive producer and VMP Director of Music Andrew Winistorfer, this season of the VMP Anthology Podcast is devoted to exploring how radical these albums were, and what they did to music after their release.

AAA Masterpieces
The seven albums — In a Silent Way, Bitches Brew, A Tribute to Jack Johnson, Live-Evil, On The Corner, Big Fun and Get Up With It — have all been mastered AAA from 1-to-1 tape transfers of the master tapes by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound. The 11 LPs featured in the box come on 180g black vinyl, pressed at GZ, and will be limited in the first edition to 2,000 units. These albums have not been reissued AAA in many years, and in some cases, ever.

Included Icon
Premium Commemorative Box
Designed in-house at VMP, these records are housed in a deluxe box featuring an iconic portrait of Miles in the style of the great Tadayuki Naitoh, and metallic silver ink on the text. The inner slipcase features a full-band live photo from the era.
