John Coltrane - His Greatest Years (1972)

2xLP Vinyl Record

VG+/VG+

John Coltrane released over two dozen albums during his tenure with Impulse!, so the double-album His Greatest Years samplers serve as a helpful compass through the artist’s extensive catalog. This, first installment in the series shows in miniature the maddening pace at which John Coltrane embraced and exhausted new sounds during the ’60s.
