Session Details: 

The John Coltrane Reference book provides an extensive record of all takes -- false starts, breakdowns, and fragments for each title. However, in the interest of time, only the main master takes (which is all that Lord provides) are included in this session. It is under 64-0427 in the John Coltrane Reference book for anyone interested in looking at the more inclusive, exhaustive list.
