John Sinclair Radio Show 806: Springsville


Episode 806 is coming from Radio Free Amsterdam headquarters in the Motor City on a rainy day in early May that made me want to hear some Miles Davis today, quite specifically some Miles Davis recordings for Columbia Records between 1955 and 1959 with John Coltrane, Red Garland, Paul Chambers, Philly Joe jones, Cannonball Adderley, Bill Evans, Jimmy Cobb, Wynton Kelly, and the mighty Gil Evans Orchestra. So here’s an hour’s worth of the finest to be had, from the albums Round About Midnight, Miles Ahead, Jazz Track, Milestones, Porgy And Bess, Live At The Plaza, and Kind of Blue—some of the greatest albums ever made by human beings.
