Original release
America 003/4/5 (except ATFW and So Long Eric)


This is a new authorized edition of this concert, with previously unreleased "ATFW" (Jaki Byard's piano solo) and complete "So Long Eric" which was previously a combination of two different performances.

According to Johan Hauknes, the initial German Universal M&L pressings (production series 51466262 (cd 1) and 51466256 (cd 2)) of this set have digital noise on tracks 2 and 3 of the disc 2. On the other hand, the French series made by Cinram Optical Discs seem to be without errors.
