Session Details: 

This is the "Suite: A Love Supreme" -- Coltrane's vocals from this session were overdubbed for the December 10, 1964 session.

The John Coltrane Reference book provides an extensive record of all takes -- false starts, breakdowns, and fragments for each title. Lord only provides the main master takes for this session. In the interest of inclusivity, we have used the John Coltrane Reference book to represent this session.

The track playtimes are provided by the John Coltrane Reference book, however, the playtimes of tracks 2, 3, 4, and 6 (all of which are alternate takes of "Resolution") are unknown.
