Hoping to find a used copy one day cause thst one is expensive.
My copy was given to me as a gift, it is expensive, but worth it. I'm pretty sure my copy was ~$50, so it makes me think I may have a different pressing, or he got a good deal.

@Kaskade89052 I just noticed the Waterloo Records price tag on it, that is a nice record shop. You in central TX? Or just happened to randomly have that Waterloo tag on it?

1978, I was 20 years old When I purchase this album. Still sounds as good as the day I picked it up. Remembering the days gone b

I believe I have that same pressing, an excellent pressing too.
Yeah, it sounds fantastic; the only problem is, my copy had an off-center press on the second side which causes my tonearm to cavitate something awful. It's caused some crackle on that side because of it, due to the constant pressure the stylus is put under to track the grooves properly, and even a nasty scratch towards the end because of a time when my last stylus was wearing down and the movement of the tonearm caused it to fly to the label.

I'm gonna eventually replace this Legacy/Sony copy I think so I can start with a fresh LP; the Sony release, though, looks great...it's on a thick slab of 180-gram vinyl and the mastering sounds mega-rich, save for some distortion in Miles' horn at the very beginning of "So What."

Actually, this Sony/Legacy release isn't that expensive; this was a reissue that's kind of a dime a dozen, at least round my parts...

Oh, no, I'm not in Texas, LOL....it's just a random image I found online that represents the version of this album I own (the Sony/Legacy 180-gram reissue).

Yo money -- I have the same turntable, brother!

Wait -- is that the LP120 or PL120?
Yo bro!! it's the LP120, It's umm about 8 years old. It's a good one, are there better ones sure, but for what I paid 199 back in 2012 can't complain.

I gots the LP120, also -- wanted one of the new Technics 1200s, but can't drop 4K on that sucker...the LP120 is a nice affordable stand in. And mine isn't quite as old as yours, but it's up there.

I bought the SL1210 back when the original production run stopped.
