On The Corner (metal spine) - deal on Miles official store

30 posts in this topic

They are. I can confirm that these are breakouts of the individual sets from the infamous Trumpet Box. On that note, I'm pretty sure they are sealed. 

Anyway, just wanted to share as I know that one goes for stupid money on Discogs and Ebay.

So the other boxes are all metal spine? Certainly looks like it...

This and the IASW box are in so many ways my favorites of the series as far as how much extra light they shine within their scope.

I don't have the IASW box, but I just grabbed this as I'd only had CD-R rips of the OTC box previously.

IIRC In A Silent Way is not actually metal but is part of the series. (And OTC isn't.)

OTC is #8 in the series.

It’s the Cellar Door set I want at a non insane price

+15%-off your first purchase when you sign on to their email list. This is the only one in the series that I don't have (I honestly don't recall why that is), say it's not too good to be true?

Dude...if nothing else, you'll want it just to hear how totally different the record was than the session.

That's not the only reason, but seriously, all the other Miles records that Teo did involved artful crafting, at times at a pretty significant compositional level, but IASW goes waaaay beyond that - and you will have no idea just how much unless you hear this box.

I was, how do other people say it...gobsmacked.

I’m jumping at the OTC set, but I wish they had the complete Montreux box.

So, if I have the 40th anniversary Bitches Brew box and the 1999 2 CD set, is there any reason to get the Complete Bitches Brew set?  I know the contents is different, but is it worth it?  Opinions?

And is there anything in the Seven Steps box that’s not available on the individual CDs?

Yes to that. Teo created "It's about Time" and then Miles began playing  it Teo's way in concert.  Mile's head/theme was left off the record and never played again as far as I know.

FWIW - the OTC metal box is going for $70 USD on the official Miles store site - https://www.milesdavisstore.com/product/X3CDMD69/the-complete-on-the-corner-sessions-6disc-cd?cp=99754_107908

Thanks for the alert!

I tried ordering, but the 15% was not coming off the order.  I've emailed the site (which seems to be Sony's Popmarket behind the scenes) and am awaiting a response.

oops. You're right. It's The Cellar Door (which is packaged just like In a Silent Way) that isn't part of the series --probably because it was recorded before but released after OTC and they would have had to number it 7.5.

Appreciate the heads up!! I’m not worried about the 15% off I can’t miss out in this at the listed price!

Love the IASW box, but the background coloring of the liner notes in the accompanying book has accounted for much of my poor vision while trying to read them. :blink:. Don't know who at Legacy/Sony signed off on that clashing orange/blue/white design. The words are barely decipherable in many parts of the notes.

Yes, if only they would reissue that one too. But I'm definitely jumping on the OTC set. It was pretty pricey even when it was available the first time around.

Can you use 15% off of first order ?

There's a pop-up when you first access the site.  You must give them your email address to get the discount code.

But it is limited and cannot be used for this set (I tried).

Then it's not really a valid offer.  Consider the logic: once you buy the OTC box (which is your first order), you can never again use the offer.

Another semi-sleazy thing: there's free shipping on orders over $75.  OTC happens to cost $69.95.

Shipping was $6.37 not terrible.  I did order it but couldnt find anything else worth buying for the free shipping
