It was many decades later that I heard a rebroadcast of a NPR special on the 25th?? anniversary of the album's release. Somehow I'd missed the original broadcast and was simply astonished to learn that it had affected so, so many others the same way it had me. I think perhaps I'd better order another copy to keep in reserve.

Update: I ordered the compact disc of this album as well and am listening now. You miss the few small qualities that are uniquely vinyl; however the compact disc is nearly seamless in its transition between tracks and the sound is otherwise fantastic. The only disappointment, and it's a cruel reality is that this album is only 60 minutes in duration. This was my first jazz album and has peaked my interest in the genre.
So why the special "Legacy Edition?"
This is not for everyone to be sure, but for listeners who really love this album, Miles Davis, and jazz of the 1950's and early 60's, "Legacy Edition" will give more insight into the material and help the listener appreciate more of what went into making "Kind of Blue" the great jazz standard that it is.
While it might overkill for some, true jazz lovers and "Kind of Blue" fans will not only get some nice second helpings from the album, they'll also get an idea of how Davis and his all-star cast created this gem.
One other note, those having old CD copies of "Kind of Blue," the ones with the animated profile of Miles on the booklet cover, not the recreation of the original LP cover, should definitely ditch their old CD and get the new remastered release. It is a huge improvement. Instead of sounding washed out and slightly off pitch, the remaster sounds fresh, with very high resolution, warm, and intimate, just the way Miles Davis and his stellar side kicks recorded it.
