John Coltrane’s landmark album Giant Steps will be reissued in various expanded formats on September 18, to celebrate its 60th birthday.

The Deluxe Edition will be available as a 180-gram double-LP set and as a double-CD set, including the newly remastered version of the original album plus eight alternate takes. Anyone who orders the 2-LP set from Rhino.com will receive a limited edition 7-inch vinyl single disc featuring alternate takes of “Giant Steps” and “Naima”.

The Super Deluxe Edition will be available for download and streaming only. The 35-track collection includes the original album, eight alternate takes, and 20 additional outtakes, all of which are newly remastered. Until now, many of the outtakes were only available on the 1995 set, The Heavyweight Champion: The Complete Atlantic Recordings.
