Session Details: 

Bruyninckx misspells Bill Folwell's name as "Bill Foldwell". Bruyninckx also mentions that Rose Marie McCoy and Mary Parks were listed as "The Soul Singers" for this session. Lordisco lists the Soul Singers as "Rose Marie, Marie McCoy, Mary Maria", but it's likely that "Mary Maria" refers to "Mary Maria Parks" as Mary Parks is referred to on http://www.jazzdisco.org/albert-ayler/discography/.

Lordisco includes Buddy Lucas on baritone sax and Bert DeCoteux as arranger and conductor, although Bruyninckx mentions neither.

Bruyninckx states that all tracks from this session except for "Thank God for Women" were issued on Impulse CD released in 1969 and Allmusic corroborates this. Allmusic credits Ayler as the co-composer, usually with McCoy, on all the tracks, but there is no distinction to lyrics. This requires more research. Another source, which is not online, appears to be Jeff Schwartz' biography on Albert Ayler.
