Session Details: 

For some reason, the 'Fresh Sounds Records' entry lists four more tracks than the Monk discography. Those tracks are identical to the ones played on October 31, 1971 in Rotterdam. However, lest it be assumed that it is just a mistake of putting the Rotterdam set in with the Prague one, the track times are wildly different. This makes it seem like Fresh Sounds has info that neither the Brillian Corners book/discography nor the Monk-book website has. -JS
