My son just called me to say the same raving things about this new release - I'm leaving right now to go pick my copy up!
One of my copies has the cataloge number of CK64935 and is dated 1997 too. My other copy is the Gold version, pressed in Japan with a cataloge # of 53861 and came in one of those cardboard long boxes. I like the 1997 version of the two. So, is this 2006 release a new version or just a re-issue like they are doing with the "RVG" stuff??
Thanks for the the up-tick on this classic project.
i have the gold version. its catalog number is ck 52861.
i have no indication as to date. the notes inside the box are dated 1992.
i have heard several redbook versions of "kind of blue", namely the original and 20 bit remastered (legacy) versions, both aluminum surfaces.
i prefer the gold version. it seems to be more subtractive in the treble region and the trumpet and saxophone sound , to my ears is more timbrally accurate than the versions alluded to above.
