Miles Davis – We Want Miles

The unidentified font looks almost like Sol Hess’s Twentieth Century, with the exception of the straight-sided M. I wonder if it ever came with the straight M as an alternate?
I’ve adjusted the primary typeface credit from Annonce / Aurora-Grotesk V to Hallo-Kursiv. The latter was added by Ludwig & Mayer in 1961, and is the only italic version of this design made in the days of metal type. See a specimen at the Letterform Archive’s website.
Castcraft showed a phototype adaptation as Hallo Italic in 1978. With a little stretching and using an upside-down W for M, this would come really close. Admittedly, slanting some version of Annonce would do so, too.
