AllMusic Review by

In the summer of 1998, Sony repackaged and re-released three of Miles Davis' most popular albums -- Sketches of Spain, Kind of Blue, and In a Silent Way -- as a slipcased box set titled Collection. Since this set features the remastered and repackaged versions of Sketches of Spain and Kind of Blue from 1997, it's a good bargain in one sense; if you haven't replaced your old CDs, this is a convenient way. However, since In a Silent Way is included in its old edition even though it's scheduled to be remastered by the end of 1998, even casual fans may want to wait until all three albums are available with remastered sound and restored artwork. And hardcore collectors, of course, will find this set of marginal interest.
