This is just for info. at this stage: you can get 1976's NOW IT'S MY TURN complete either on the 2-CD version of the collection called Round Midnight - The Roulette Years (ASIN B00004SG0Z on Amazon UK, but pays to shop around), or as the single CD vol. 2 of that same set (ASIN B00EZ62D0A on Amazon UK). In fact the twofer is very nearly all of 2 other releases as well that covered the Judson Hall 6 Dec. 1969 concert put out on CD in the early 90s as FINALLY and ROUND MIDNIGHT (confusingly, because it thus shares the title with the unrelated ATCO release of some years earlier, ASIN B000002IHK), minus 'only' the track 'You're a Sweetheart' from FINALLY. I have the twofer on the way, but from the helpful image on Amazon USA at ASIN B000OH3SCG, it's clear this twofer is LEGITIMATE, licensed from EMI (so presumably that would now be Warner?).

May be helpful to know that this LP, Now It's My Turn, has been reissued on CD in its entirety, as the last nine tracks on CD2 of 'Betty Carter - 'Round Midnight - The Roulette Years'. An obscure 2-CD box set, this falls short of perfection as a reissue in omitting, on grounds of lack of space, one track (You’re a Sweetheart’) from the two separately issued CDs that in turn reissued the live New York 1969 stuff (Finally and 'Round Midnight, both Roulette of course, though neither of these 1991 reissues has so far been listed on Discogs). As far as I can tell, Now It's My Turn has otherwise disappeared.
