This LP added three more alternate takes to the legacy of guitarist Wes Montgomery when it was first released in 1983.
The album picks up the three additional tracks from the live Full House sessions not included on the CD version, moves on to an extensive five-tune sampling of Montgomery's sole Riverside album with strings, Fusion!, and concludes with a pair of organ-trio outtakes from 1963. The Full House section reaches a peak with a burning rendition of "Blue 'N' Boogie," while "Cariba" is audibly less well organized than the approved take.
