|4||Off to the Races (The Long Two/Four)||6:35|
Lordisco includes Einar Swan's "When Your Lover Has Gone", but jazzdisco.org omits this track. Unclear why there is this discrepancy. All six tracks appear on the Blue Note issue Donald Byrd "Off to the Races". Nevertheless, Raben's book claims that the track's song is a Byrd original "When Your Love Has Gone", not the Einar Swan tune at all. Listening to the CD reissue supports the claim that the track on the Byrd session does not bear an aural similarity to the Swan standard.
Lordisco & Jazzdisco.org do not list track playtimes, but you can find copies of the original issue on amazon, which lists the playtimes.
This is one of only two sessions I could find with Jackie McClean from the year 1958, as a leader or a sideman. It would be interesting to find out why he was so unprolific this particular year. A particularly bad year for his addictions? Touring? Family issues?
Also, Lord and Bruyninckx list these tracks as appearing on the issue "Off to the Races", but on the CD re-issue of that album, the date of the corresponding session is listed as December 2, 1958, instead of the 21st.
