Lon,  you must not have seen my earlier question.  Is this recording on the  Columbia Miles Mono box you bought?  I've found my 1988 CD reissue on Fontana by Polygram Jazz...I don't remember listening to it previously but will later tonight.  I'm going to go into my Listening Cave soon. I'll be checking out the results of the RCA cleartop 12AU7 I put into the ZP3 this morning.  Also put in some NOS RCA 5Y3GT's in the Torii.  What rectifiers do you run in your Torii...I do recall it's RCA's in the CSP and ZP3. Mark.

You're talking about "Lift to the Scaffold" right? In the mono box set the "Jazz Track" lp is there in its mono version (I think it only ever came out in mono). On side one is the Paris material, side two has material from the Miles Davis Sextet of '58. I'm not sure how much material is on the cd you have. I have a later Fontana cd that has 76 minutes of material: all that is on the Jazz Track lp (which has added reverb) and then the rest is the unedited tracks (without reverb). This Blu-ray audio has the same material on the cd I have, but in 24/96 PCM.

Oh, and I use RCA rectifiers all around, I just find I like them best. In the Torii I am using some early 'fifties 5U4G coke bottle-type.

Lon, why the 5U4G's rather than the 5Y3 type you've got everywhere else?  What are the sonic differences between the two types.  I bought the RCA 5Y3GT's because I saw an auction on Ebay and needed something NOS since one of the Union National 5U4G's I had in my Torii was only intermittently working despite the "wiggle"...same when I put it in the CSP3 and Taboo Amp.

My 1988 Redbook CD of "Ascenseur pour Lechafaud" is the same material as yours...26 tracks, same cover also.  I think the Jazz Tracks album has the ten tracks that were released in 1958...tracks 17 through 26 on our CDs.  Mark.

I've tried 5Y3GT in the Torii, and just prefer the 5U4G. Not sure what the sonic differences are now, it's been so long since I did a comparison. I just preferred the 5U4G. The opposite is true in my CSP2, two CSP2+s and ZP3. Just how it is!

My cd is different than yours, different mastering and sequencing; my cd (and this Blu-ray) have the ten tracks that were on Jazz Track first.

Lon, we're both a bit OCD about this stuff.  I had gone to discogs and looked up Jazz Track.  About our CD's, I see you are correct...wanna trade...hehe.  Mark.  

PS... I just pulled my copies of "58 Sessions" released on CD in 1991 with all seven tracks by the "Kind of Blue" sextet including Bill Evans and the "Live at Newport 1958 & 1963" released on CD in 1994...it has to have been at least 15 years since I last listened to them.  As I read the info I realized all of this material, including the soundtrack, is from 1958...the year I was born.

This LP now.  With the RCA 12AU7 Cleartops in the ZP3, the sound seems a little too bright. Or are the RCA 5Y3GT's I put into the Torii contributing?  I have to stop changing more than one tube at a time!  Mids and Low end are nice though and lots of detail.  I have three other types of 12AU7s on the way.  None expensive like the NOS Amprex from Holland or Mullards.  I figure I'll wait to see how I like what choices I've got once the HR-1's are in place.  I know the Zu Audio "Souls" are very different than the HR-1's.  Mark.

Yes, amazing music from that year!

Have you ever discovered recordings made the day you were born? I found that Hank Jones did a great trio session for Savoy that day (with Wendell Marshall and the drummer that inspired my own drumming, Kenny Clarke), and Chico Hamilton recorded live for Pacific Jazz that day. Neat stuff to listen to and realize I had just arrived!

The Cleartops could be the culprit, now. . . give them some time. You're going to love the HR=1s. My pair is now in the "finishing" stage.

This LP next...from Junior High.  I had forgotten how much I love Art Garfunkel's voice.  I've got a few of his solo LPs somewhere.
