There is also a bootleg version, likely from the 1980s, that is very difficult to differentiate from an original (thinner, white-stock gatefold jacket, paper inner).

I have a sick fascination with this bootleg CD cover, but alas I'm sure nobody is getting paid.

Extremely high quality transfer and pressing, highly recommended authorized edition of this classic Ohio jazz album.

grabbed it this morning, sound is superb compared to the El Saturn/Thoth versions. Well done!

this release was actually sanctioned by Mr. Nothing; it was bootlegged because Concord, which owns Takoma, was unwilling to license it.

I used to have this and recall it being a 45 rpm 12" disc, so the timings are correct at a faster speed.

There is some question on the Schoof track. Mats Gustafsson has claimed it is Parker and Bennink. The usual tenor saxophonist for this group at the time was Gerd Dudek and to me it sounds more like Dudek (I have everything this band recorded). If it... See full review

Be aware: some of the LP and cassette transfers are absolutely horrible. Midwoud 77 is actually missing from all the sets and ICP 017/018 are actually duplicates. Really roughshod quality-control on otherwise indispensable music. It's a drag.
