I think it's a good idea the way Wiki breaks it into periods.

1945-1956
First Miles (1945)
Cool Boppin' (1948)
Birth of the Cool (1949 and 1950)
Conception (1951)
Blue Period (1951)
Dig (1951)
Miles Davis and Horns (1951 and 1953)
Miles Davis Volume 1 (Blue Note Records, 1952 and 1954)
Miles Davis Volume 2 (Blue Note Records, 1953)
Blue Haze (1953 and 1954)
Collectors' Items (1953 and 1956)

'Round About Midnight (1955–1956)
Miles Ahead (1957)

Porgy and Bess (1958)
1958 Miles (1958)

Sketches of Spain (1960) (RIAA: Gold)

Someday My Prince Will Come (1961)
Quiet Nights (1962–1963)
Seven Steps to Heaven (1963)
E.S.P (1965)
Miles Smiles (1966)
Sorcerer (1967)
Nefertiti (1967)
Miles in the Sky (1968)
Filles de Kilimanjaro (1969 - recorded in June & September 1968)
In a Silent Way (1969)
Bitches Brew (1970 - recorded in August 1969) (RIAA: Platinum)

(A Tribute to) Jack Johnson (1970)
Live-Evil (1971 - recorded in the studio February and June 1970 & live in December 1970)
On the Corner (1972)

Big Fun (1974 - previously unissued recordings from 1969–1972)
Get Up with It (1974 - previously unissued recordings from 1970–1974)
Water Babies (1976 - previously unissued recordings from 1967 & 1968)
Circle in the Round (1979 - previously unissued recordings from 1955–1970)

Music from Siesta (1987 - film soundtrack)
Amandla (1989)

Dingo (1991 - film soundtrack)
Doo-Bop (1992)


Couldn't pick one above the other off the Quintet records (I love them all). For the Seven Steps to Heaven - Filles de Kilimanjaro string of amazing albums I only bolded Miles Smiles but I think for such a transitional period we need to decide which of those to bold.

Now start bitchin.

For help in creating tier:

PENGUIN
-Gives The Complete Birth of the Cool, Miles Davis and the Modern Jazz Giants, The Complete Prestige Recordings, Miles Ahead, L'Ascenseur Pour L'Echafaud, Milestones, Miles Davis & Thelonious Monk: Live at Newport 1958 & 1963, Porgy and Bess, Kind of Blue, In Person - Friday and Saturday Night at the Blackhawk - Complete, The Complete Columbia Recordings: With John Coltrane 1955-1961, Miles in Antibes, E.S.P., Miles Smiles, The Complete Live at the Plugged Nickel, Miles Davis and Gil Evans: The Complete Columbia Studio Sessions, In a Silent Way, Bitches Brew, Jack Johnson, The Complete Jack Johnson Sessions, Live-Evil, Agharta, and Aura all five stars. The bold ones they put in the Crown Collection (personal favorites), and the red ones they put in the Core Collection (essential for any jazz fan), and the italicized ones they put in their 1001 Best Albums book for jazz beginners.

ALLMUSIC
-Gives Miles Davis and the Modern Jazz Giants, Round About Midnight, Birth of the Cool, Bags' Groove, Miles Ahead, Relaxin, Milestones, Porgy and Bess, Kind of Blue, Workin, Sketches of Spain, Steamin, Miles Smiles, Nefertiti, In a Silent Way, Bitches Brew, A Tribute to Jack Johnson, On the Corner, and about 30 million compilations all five stars. The bold ones they also give an "AMG Album Pick"

Anyone who is willing to somehow resolve all of that information can make the tier.

Is there a record that gets more universal love than Kind of Blue?

I was just reading its Wikipedia page today, and I'm leaning towards no.

But then again allmusic don't give it an album pick. :ugh:

Man, Miles Smiles is awesome. Probably one of my favorite Davis releases.

Picked up a 10 CD set, that's 20 albums, for $15NZ today. :eek: It has pretty much everything he put out in the 50s. I don't understand how this release is legal.
