Notes

Tracks A1, A2 & B1 recorded live at Birdland, New York on October 8, 1963. Tracks B2 & B3 recorded in the studio on November 18, 1963.

Stereo A-50 on spine and cover. Similar to Live At Birdland except that labels read AS-50-A and AS-50-B, instead of just AS-50.
Orange and black Impulse! labels.

Van Gelder stamp in trail off.Tracks A1, A2 & B1 recorded live at Birdland, October 8, 1963. Tracks B2 & B3 recorded "in the studio", November 18, 1963.

"Stereo A-50" on spine and cover. "AS-50" on labels.

Black ABC/Impulse! label, and non-laminated gatefold.Manufactured under licence from MCA Records.
Release date uncertain - states "Also available on cassette" on the sleeve, which rules out 1964!

The printed inner in the picture displays “a love supreme” which came out a year later. So this can not be an original 1964 release. My copy has the same labels and the same inner sleeve so the inner hasn’t probably just been mixed up.

I noticed on this recording, especially on headphones; When they mixed the stereo version Coltrane's sax is panned mostly LEFT. This was not uncommon as they were trying to recreate the actual 'soundstage'. However when his mic is open the drum bleed into that mic give the drums a more natural sound. When he is not soloing at times the mixing engineer mutes the sax mic, which creates a sudden change in sound of the drums. I found it slightly distracting. But once I realized it was not my system and it was recorded that way it wasn't so bad. Probably less distracting when listening over speakers rather than headphones. A quaint reminder of recording styles for Jazz from that era.

From what i've found online, those mutes may be tape dropouts, apparently only present on the stereo. I purchased an original Mono a month ago and don't hear any of it on this version.

Discogs will be complete when each edition accurately lists the actual duration of Alabama on the individual pressing, 2:23 or 5:05.
