From the sleevenotes

“The Danish Debut company originally failed to issue this part of the recording date but, with hindsight, it is not difficult to imagine why. In a jazz world honed to the technical cutting edge of saxophonists such as John Coltrane and Sonny Rollins, Ayler must have appeared as a primitive.”

Barry McRae (from the sleevenotes of the Black Lion release)
