Tremendous notes in the booklet.

I’ve identified tunes where I can, but haven’t listened to all of this yet. I was just given it the other day and am enjoying every minute so far .

This quote from Hugh Gillespie (a Coleman cohort) jumps out at me and sums up the feeling of what I’ve heard so far:
" … you were making a whole lot of records and thought nothing of it. Now someone makes a record, holy heavens you’d think they went to the stars! We just made records and that’s all. Same as we played in the dance hall, there was no big deal about it"
