one of my favorites turns 50

So I think most of the readers of this blog already own Kind of Blue. But if you don't I ask that you run, don't walk to your nearest record store and buy yourself a copy. Then head home and turn it on really loud. Listen to it all the way through. The album just turned 50 and is the best selling jazz album for good reason.

I was first introduced to Kind of Blue in ninth grade by one very hip English teacher. After my first listen I couldn't get enough. Since that day I've replaced my copy twice and I still can't get enough.
