John Coltrane - His Greatest Years Vol. 2 (1972)

2xLP Vinyl Record (White Label Promo)

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, second installment in the series shows in miniature the maddening pace at which John Coltrane embraced and exhausted new sounds during the ’60s.
