Comment to the session by Ed Michael:

On the Alice Coltrane album with Pharoah, impulse AS-9203 (Journey in Satchidananda), recorded at the Coltrane home studio, there were two takes of the first tune: the first was 10:38, and probably became Something About John Coltrane; the second was 7:37, and probably became Journey in Satchidananda. (This may seem confused, but tune titles were changed frequently, and it was very hard to keep track about which was which.) The second tune was Shiva-Loka; first take was 7:17; second and third were false starts; fourth was 9:08; fifth was 10:09, and is probably the master take. Third tune was called Leo on the date; first take was a long false start, second take was 6:20, and may have been used to make Stopover Bombay. Fourth tune was called The Sun, with one take at 3:55; then there was an attempt at either more of this or of an alternate tune, for which there were five takes: first was a false start; second was 2:23; third false start; fourth 2:45; fifth 3:01. My notes give the date for this as October 27, 1970, but the album credits say November 8, 1970. Your guess is as good as mine.
