the first authorized release by permission of the Estate of Albert Ayler of the two concerts played at La Cave, Cleveland on April 16 & 17, 1966. Remastered for best possible sound of these under difficult technical circumstances recorded performances.

"A new Albert Ayler recording is something of an event because it adds to a relatively thin discography. Almost unknown was the series of tapes made in April 1966 at a club called La Cave. It was all the more significant because it was located in Albert Ayler’s home town of Cleveland. Half a century after he left us, we are still catching up with Albert Ayler and still coming to terms with his unique synthesis of the traditional and the avant-garde. This is another important document in that belated journey of discoveries and is some of his emotionally freest playing." – Brian Morton
