Session Details: 

With regard to the multiple listings for the rhythm section: since there is such a wide range for this 'session', it should be considered possible that this reflects three separate combos in the rhythm section, not necessarily that every song has three guitarists, three bassists and three drum kits. Also, Bruyninckx gives a slightly smaller window of dates: February-March, rather than all the way to May. -JS
