    Leo on the CD sounds like it is being played backwards or as if the air is being sucked out of it. And catching up with itself while moving forward. Terrifying record.

      A unique record in the Coltrane discography. Coltrane in his last avant-garde period playing duets with drummer Rasheed Ali. Not for easy listening. The original vinyl version is interesting in it’s mastering where there is some reverb added and I think it also has something to do with the SQ quadraphonic matrix as well. I have yet to play it in quad. The remastered CD is recommended to get as well to hear this without added effects and extra tracks. A masterpiece!

        It sounds like two intelligent beings that have evolved beyond typical speech and now converse in music, with such vigour and intensity that it's clear they can say so much more between each other than what we are limited to by words alone. And then at some point it hits you that there isn't two beings conversing; it's one and one alone. It's only John Coltrane. Speaking to himself, by himself, from himself. There was only ever one saxophone in the room. One of the strangest, most engrossing and futuristic recordings ever made. I put it on tonight and apologized to my wife: Sorry, that's just Coltrane trying to find a way to communicate without using a language that already exists. And we listened to it on Christmas, so with the sleigh bells to begin and end the album, it was perfect.

          Great album. I have a "FOR PROMOTION ONLY Ownership Reserved by MCA RECORDS, INC. Sale is Unlawful G" copy. Any insight on this copy?

            For anyone wondering how the quadraphonic version of this album sounds on regular stereo equipment, there's significantly more room reverb mixed with the dry stereo signal. It definitely sounds different compared to the original mix.

              Can anyone help to identify this one, please? My cd version just doesn't match with other items listed on this page. So, here it goes: it's on Impulse, it is a digipack, it has the booklet and the issue date is given as 2000 on the back cover. It also says it's made in the EU. The barcode is as follows: 731454341523. Apart from these, nothing is the same with other entries given on this release.. On the ring, it has one single Universal logo, two identical IFPIs: 9460, yet another IFPI that goes like L552, Sony DADC and 5434152 12 A00. Maybe I've missed something while I was checking the entries but I don't think so. Thanks.
