A few important notes:

The Coltrane Reference book says there are false starts in this session, but because those were unissued, they don't list them among the tracks. They just put a note at the bottom of the page that "false starts are unissued". We have added them here for the sake of completion.

There's a log that says "insert ending" for the master track of "Then I'll Be Tired of You". Apparently, though, the discographer listened to the track and could not aurally identify where any splicing might have occurred.

Goldsboro Express is Coltrane's melody played over the Back Home Again in Indiana chord changes.

The first take ("incomplete") of 'Time After Time' may have been "This Nearly Was Mine". It has been lost/erased, however, so it is still unknown. The Coltrane Reference book states taht it is more likely that it was the latter, but still lists it as "Time After Time".
