Ironically, the first pressing of this CD contained a "bonus track." We
submitted (via ftp) eight sequenced tracks. The finished disc had nine.
Track #6 was a four-minute free jazz instrumental by an unidentified
trumpet-bass-drums combo. No one at Innova had any idea how it ended up in
the Judson audio files, and no one at the label recognized it. The discs had
to be re-manufactured.
The "bonus track" discs are, I suppose, collector's items, and while the
instrumental provided a curious interlude, I don't think James' wife would
have considered it "good music." It was pretty raw.
We're working with Otis Fodder to get the Judson website together. Slow
going, but progress:
