Miles Davis: The Complete Columbia Album Collection

On sale Nov. 10
If the new Miles Davis box set lands on your shelves this season, it will probably break them. This collection has everything, literally, that Davis ever recorded for Columbia: 70 CDs' worth of material. Of course, anyone interested in such a set probably has a few Davis albums already, so Columbia/Legacy has loaded each disc with bonus tracks and thrown in a DVD and a 250-page booklet. At $369.98 (available only on Amazon), that works out to about $5 a disc. A bargain, until you factor in the cost of new shelves.
