This is the second different incarnation of Pure Desmond.
It includes three previously unissued tracks (one of them, Nuages (alternate take) actually replacing the previously released Nuages)... go figure :p
A 13 tracks (complete) third incarnation exists, restoring the stripped track and adding more a.ts.
