Any 1950s Miles Davis recording could easily be called a “collector’s item,” but these selections have special claims to this description. The first four offer Charlie Parker in his only recordings in support of Miles, who had begun his disc career as Bird’s sideman. The last four feature a unique Davis/Mingus encounter. In between is Miles just before launching his first great Quintet, heading two groups loaded with top talent of the “post-bop” period.

*#1-7 originally released as Collectors’ Items (Prestige 7044); #8 as part of Conception (Prestige 7013); and #9-12 as Blue Moods (Debut 120).

**Since maximum playing time of a single CD could not accommodate the entire length of the original double-LP release, “My Old Flame” was omitted.
