This is a Japanese release, which is probably very hard to find.
On original double album 'Take The "A" Train', 'Orange Was The Color
Of Her Dress' (9:00 + 7:25) and 'Meditations On Integration' (9:20 + 17:00)
are split in two parts. However, the CD is shorter than the 2-LP. Why?
Here's the answer by Ton Witberg:
'Meditations On Integration':
on LP, pt1 = intro 2:00+7:45, pt2 = 14:13+1:54 ovation: total 21:58 music including overlap
'Orange Was The Color Of Her Dress, Then Blue Silk':
on LP, pt1 = intro 1:04+6:14, pt2 = 6:30, total 12:44 music including overlap, rest is intro
I think the difference is in the length of the intro's and the ovation on the cd.
