Session Details: 

The Reference Book notes that this version of Ascension is labeled as 'Blue Valse' or 'Blue Waltz' on some issues, due apparently to an error by a cameraman's assistant. 

Also, while it was a recording of a live performance (hence the notation above), it apparently was a private recording of such. Also, the JCRB notes that the second track has a fade-in opening that implies a preceding (lost?) Jimmy Garrison bass solo.
