There were a fair number of Canadian performers in this show as well as several "first plays" (such as Eric Dolphy and Duke Ellington). In addition, there were some real "highlight" tracks, at least for me :-) These included Dave Douglas' "Freak in", "Space odyssey" by the Detroit Experiment (I've since played the original by Marcus Belgrave twice; it's a fantastic piece), and "Facelift" by Soft Machine (I've said it before, I love that "Third" LP by the Softs!). Hmm, these are all kinda spacey tunes; I wonder if there's a trend there... And, of course, Ready or not 2 gets milked again, this time for "Greek street break in" by Sadik Hakim.
