Sounds about right.

I bought mine in 1961, from Harrod's record department. I guess it was an imported copy, as it has the stamp-sized "Mecolico" PRS sticker and one from Chappel Music on the back, with the amount of fees paid, just a few old pence. 

This recording was really to help Adderley get some recognition, but has always been considered more a Davis album. I also bought Adderley's "Cannonball Takes Charge" at the same time. I replaced both with CDs when they became available to save wear on the originals. I had to wait a hell of a long time for them to release the second one on CD.

The question asked  by Miles; "Is that what you wanted Alfred?" at the end of the track was directed at Alfred Lyon, the producer. So I guess it was.

This album has never lost its appeal for me.

I bought this LP in the early 60's and it would definitely be on my desert island short list.

I hear Adderley wrote this for Chicago Legend DJ Daddy-O Daylie.

My aunt brought it to my mother in 1964-65 from New York. I still remember the album sleeve.

I think Mile's solo might be the most tasteful and perfectly phrased soulful solo I have ever heard from a trumpeter player. Daymn
