      When Columbia first issued this album, 6 of the 9 tracks were shortened drastically to fit them on the LP. Later reissues (on CD) have included the tracks in their original full length, but this edition of the album had not been released on vinyl yet, until now! 50 years after its original conception, as it was intended by the Angry Man of Jazz himself.
