Recorded on August 25, 1965 at RCA 24th Street Studios, New York City.

The Complete Sun Ship Sessions include newly discovered and previously unissued alternative takes from one of the John Coltrane Quartet's final studio sessions.

The discovered reels are three-track masters with tenor sax on one channel, piano and bass on another and drums on third, which afforded mix down remastering engineer Kevin Reeves a great opportunity to get the balance just right. The new mix far exceeds the results obtained originally.

This Mosaic Records LP was remastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearant Sound, using pure analogue components only, from the original analogue studio tapes through to the cutting head and was pressed on virgin vinyl at RTI.
