Disc One #1 originally issued on "The New Wave In Jazz" (Impulse AS-90). Disc One #2-3 and Disc Two #1-2 originally issued as "Albert Ayler In Greenwich Village" (Impulse AS-9155). Disc One #4-6 and Disc Two #3-7 originally issued as "Albert Ayler: The Village Concerts" (IA-9336-2). Disc Two #8 is previously unissued.

Remastered at MCA Studios using 20-bit Super Bit Mastering.

"Light in Darkness" and "Heavenly Home" are in mono. A version of "Saints" was recorded at the Village Gate session but no master tape of that performance has survived. All other selections are in stereo. "Universal Thoughts" is an incomplete performance, most likely because the tape ran out before its completion.

Housed in double gatefold digipak with 28 page booklet.
