The 50s weren't even Davis' best decade.

Miles Davis

was one bad mofo. I'm assuming most of his record sales were overseas, 'cuz Americans never really appreciated bop jazz like they should have.

The "flags" picture at the top of this page (right hand side) gives an impression of where he had his success. As you can see mostly in the US with a following in the UK, Europe and France (but nothing in Germany, Japan or other English speaking countries). Of course that is influenced by the charts we have (nothing in the 1950s for Japan for example)
