    • Playing Favorites: Reflections on Jazz in the 1970s
      Herbie was a young giant in the 60's, but he certainly became a much bigger and quite different sort of giant in the 70's.
    • Miles on Columbia
      I had a TON of those Miles albums as individual titles, incl. a fair number as Japanese imports too.  Directions I especially remember being a bear to find on CD, and I even had the Japanese editions of Sorcerer and Nefertiti about a year or two before they'd ever come out in the US on CD. Anyway, while I completely agree the boxes disagreeably discard the original album-sequencing, I ultimately couldn't justify owning ALL that material twice -- for reasons of space/storage as much as anything.  I never got rid of jewel boxes, and was probably up around 5,000 CD's by the time I decided to part with all those individual Miles albums on CD. Do I regret not having them any more?  Sure.  But given our tiny 630 sq-ft, 1BR apartment here in DC, there's no way in hell I could justify having that much duplicated material. I've burned a couple CDR's here and there, with the original sequences, but not all that many.  Sorcerer and Nefertiti both fit wonderfully on one CD (sans "Nothing Like You...").  And a number of other key albums are in the original LP-sequences on the metal-spine boxes. And I did keep Kind of Blue, of course - which for those rare times I want to hear it, I really want to hear the actual album as intended. No big regrets, but I totally understand the impulse to have a lot of them as originally sequenced.
