Three LPs: Original remastered album plus mono reference mixes, outtakes and live recording of the suite!

Easily one of the most important records ever made, John Coltrane's A Love Supreme was his pinnacle studio outing that at once compiled all of his innovations from his past, spoke of his current deep spirituality, and also gave a glimpse into the next two-and-a-half years.

This exhaustive 3LP set gathers every scrap of material recorded during the recording sessions as well as a live performance of the suite from later the same year. You get a clearer sense than ever before of the different forms A Love Supreme might have taken, and how Coltrane's desire to communicate something specific and profound led to its final shape.
