Recording Date: 1960/09/14
Recording Location: Orléans, France
Additional:
This is the bonus cd of the Revenant box set, that contains a very early recording of Ayler featuring in the... U.S. Army Band!
Printed on the cd, one can see "U.S. Army 76th AG Band Rehearsal", whatever that means :).

The complete rehearsal should contain 12 tracks, only featuring Ayler on two of them (confirm this?)
Personnel is reported as:
Larry Drabik, ? Long, ? Holman (trumpets)
John Pajak, Max Marable, Thomas Blagg (trombones)
Willie Gordon (french horn)
Albert Ayler, Leo Howard, Ralph Sgrillo, Robert Throne, ? Elseroad (saxophones)
? Cushman (piano)
? Babcock (guitar)
? Raines (bass)
Tony Sarmento, Paul Tolar (drums)
Though it's not clear on what tunes they perform.

This obviously is only of interest for deranged completists :-)

Additional:
This box set contains a bunch of long-lost/unreleased/unavailable material recorded by Albert Ayler, along with an impressive amount of informations and... a dead flower.
Packaged in a huge (some say ugly) plastic box, a great deal of care has been put both in the remastering work and in the packaging.
A definitive must for Ayler's fans and exigent discographers.

#11, 1966/02
Notes:
"tune Q" was regularly mistitled as Saints and/or Spirits. This indeed is the same composition that appeared on the first edition of ESP 1002 (Spiritual Unity), and is different from the one on the second edition of ESP 1002.
#1 should not be confused with "Wizard". This one is the same composition as on ESP 1002.
