Session Details: 

This is a radio broadcast of a live concert that was part of something called "Woche der Leichten Musik". This session is noted by Jimmy Lyons' discographer Jan Strom, who includes radio announcements between tracks. However, he notes that the announcements were recorded in 1995 during a radio broadcast of the 1966 concert. Therefore, I have not included them in this session.

 

Also, although Taylor has another song simply called "Amplitude", the two tracks with that title are in fact different songs in this case, as Strom notes in his sessionography of Jimmy Lyons. -JS
