KIND OF BLUE, KIND OF BLUE, KIND OF BLUE !!!!

KIND OF BLUE has been around for a bunch of years,  The first time I listened to it I felt it was the best jazz album ever recorded.  The last time I listened to something from it - yesterday 10/15/2018 -my thoughts were that it is the best jazz album ever recorded.  I've often thought that it might be THE BEST ALBUM EVER RECORDED.  Current sales figures mentioned on a radio broadcast yesterday stated KIND OF BLUE still sells 5000 copies per week.  How 'bout that!!!
