My copy of this has a strange running order AAA DDD BBB CCC. I'm not 100% sure which one of the listed issues of the comp it is. (Impulse / ABC - AS-9223-02 1972, Thick Gatefold Sleeve)
Anybody else encountered that?

Great comp, btw!

This really works as an introduction and appreciation of Coltrane's (strange[-er?]) Impulse recordings.
Heard it as a kid in the early '70's and was totally astonished. Many overlooked gems e.g. 'The Promise', from his "Live at Birdland" release and 'Chim Chim Cheree' (studio version) are included.
Lets just say ALL these recordings are well worth exploring and seeking out especially in their full versions.
' Greensleeves', 'Ascension' and ' The Father, The Son, and The Holy Ghost' appear in edited form.
A great release IMHO.
