Notes

Track A1 - Variety Recording Studio, NYC, between 1968 and 1970.
Track A2a - Recorded mono, probably at a live performance, 1970.
Track A2b - Recorded at Sun Studios, NYC, 1967 or '68 (Sun Ra solo) / Recorded at Choreographers' Workshop, NYC, 1963 (group).
Track B1 - Recorded in early 1968; it is different from a live recording from 1969 previously known to discographers.
Track B2 - Recorded live in NYC, early 1968.

"Sun Ra must have planned Janus as an entity in 1970 or 1971. But it was never released on LP. The first three tracks eventually appeared on one side of some obscure Saturn LP pressings; the last two are just now being issued, allowing us to hear Sun Ra's original conception for the first time."
