Note: (1) Lloyd re-recorded “Passin’ Thru” for a 2017 album of that name. He also adapted “Passin’ Thru” for “Harvest,” a song from his 1972 album Waves. (2) “Lady Gabor” also covered by Charles Lloyd (1966 – issued 1971, 1967 – issued 2019, and 2021) and Nels Cline (2016). (3) Szabo adapted elements of “Lady Gabor” for later recordings of “Gypsy ‘66” (1965) and “First Tune in the Morning” (1978). (3) “El Toro” sampled by Dangerman for “Good Friend” (1999), with Chico Hamilton erroneously credited as Slide Hampton.
