Big Big Big Miles Davis Box Set On The Way

miles-davis-birth1 71 discs! We’re at DEFCON 3 here at MDO headquarters.

Via a report on Pitchfork, word is that on November 10, Columbia/Legacy will release The Complete Columbia Album Collection.

The box will include 70 CDs and one DVD.

My head hurts.

During his tenure at Columbia Records, Miles Davis recorded an awe-inspiring 52 albums. Pretty soon, you’ll be able to own all of them in one gigantic box that will probably be heavy enough to kill someone. The set will also include a previously unreleased live recording of Davis’s performance at the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival.

According to Legacy, the CDs will all come in “Japanese-styled mini LP jackets”, which sounds cool. The CDs will include bonus tracks that have been tacked on to Davis reissues over the years. There will also be a 250-page book.

The DVD featured is Live in Europe ’67, which will be on DVD for the first time ever with this set.

The massive collection will be available exclusively from Amazon — for $369.98.
