Miles Davis Volume 1 refers to two separate but related entities. The title was originally used for the first in a pair of compilation albums of recordings made by Miles Davis in 1952, 1953 and 1954, released in 1956 (and reissued many times) as BLP 1501 on the Blue Note Records label.

Miles Davis – Volume 1 & Volume 2. 2 LPs, 23 tracks, an hour and a half of music, 3 sessions spread over 3 years. These recordings constitute the entire output of Miles Davis on Blue Note with exception of his later, Columbia-era session with Cannonball Adderley, Somethin' Else in 1958. The material runs the gamut from straight bop (Dizzy Gillespie’s Woody’n You ) to complex Birth Of The Cool-style arrangements (. Johnson’s Enigma ) to standards ( How Deep is the Ocean by Irving Berlin) to a Swedish folk tune ( Dear Old Stockholm ). For his first Blue Note session, Miles brought along altoist Jackie McLean (just a few days shy of his 21st birthday) as well as pianist Gil Coggins. Both Coggins and McLean were part of the band with which Miles had just wrapped up a week-long engagement at Birdland.

Miles Davis, Vo. is a 195410 inch LP album by Miles Davis. It consists of the third and last of three recorded for Blue Note Records. Several years later, Davis would once again record at Blue Note and this was the first of several sessions Davis would record with the young Horace Silver, whom he liked for his funky style of playing. After the 10 LP format was discontinued, the tracks would all reappear on the 12 album version of Miles Davis Volume 2, in the CD era all six tracks would be reassigned to the CD version of Miles Davis Volume 1. Miles Davis – trumpet Horace Silver – piano Percy. Miles Davis – trumpet Jackie McLean – alto saxophone, tracks 1 &2 Sonny Rollins – tenor saxophone Walter Bishop, Jr. – piano Tommy Potter – double bass Art Blakey – drums.

Plastylite test pressing from December 05th 1955, a few months before the actual release. Labels carry the 'deep groove' as stamped in both labels.

Label of the a-side has a number 1 written at "class", which explains the matrix/runout number of the a-side, which ends with A1, whereas the b-side matrix/runout simply ends with B. The A1 may point to the fact that RVG discarded the first (A) lacquer that he cut and that the final lacquer to prepare stampers with, was the second one, the A1.
