In recognition of both the legacy of the legendary artist that was Miles Davis as well as today's anticipated Miles Davis House @ SXSW in Austin TX (scroll down for flyer and text info) is the above top ten Miles Davis vinyl currently available from Amoeba Music (note that titles by the jazz legend on vinyl tend to sell out but do get restocked). Many recently reissued or for the first time compiled Miles collections these must-get vinyl releases in the subjective countdown include the 2019 Down At Dawn record label release from just two months ago of the Miles Davis and Jimmy Forrest LP Live At The Barrel LP/vinyl. Topping the Miles vinyl chart is the triple red colored vinyl The Best of Miles Davis 3LP red vinyl that Not Now Music released last May and (by current vinyl pricing standards) at  $34.98 for the nicely packaged three colored vinyl LP set is a real good deal. Included on this 20-track "best of Miles" collection are such classics of his as "'Round Midnight," "Straight No Chaser," "My Funny Valentine," "Milestones" and "Miles Ahead." Many of these overlap on the single vinyl, eight song Miles Davis Greatest Hits LP/vinyl via Sony from last year.

Another triple vinyl set recently released, albeit all 10" records, is the Verve release last June of Ascenseur pour l'échafaud [OST] [Deluxe Edition] (3LP 10" vinyl set) (Verve). Then there's the blue colored vinyl reissue of....you guessed it.... Kind Of Blue blue-colored vinyl/LP that seems like a no-brainer for the guys over at Sony Music vinyl reissue department.  But it is thanks to the curators/reissue heads over at the Doxy record label who last September released The Original Quintet (First Recording) vinyl/LP with Davis in the fine company of John Coltrane, Red Garland, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones. Similarly essential is the Miles Davis and Coltrane e The Final Tour: Copenhagen, March 24, 1960 vinyl/LP  from last March via Sony Legacy. Also reissued in this past year was the Wax Love pressing of Porgy & Bess vinyl/LP. Reissued by DOL this time last year was the vinyl version of Seven Steps To Heaven vinyl/LP. Another Miles release via the aforementioned Doxy record label is Young Man With The Horn Vol 1 LP/vinyl which is one of three volumes in this vinyl series from May 2018. Find all of these and more Miles Davis vinyl via Amoeba.
