Album artwork for Complete Live At The Village Gate 1962 by Sonny Rollins

The 1962 live engagement at the Village Gate marked Sonny Rollins first recording ever with Don Cherry, as well as one of the earliest made by the saxophonist following his three-year long self-imposed musical exile. It was all recorded in a piano-less quartet format with Bob Cranshaw on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums. While only three tunes from the gig (Dearly Beloved in a highly edited form) were included on the famous LP Our Man in Paris (RCA Victor LPM 2612), this 6-CD collection adds all existing music taped during those live sessions, totalling more than three hours of previously unreleased material in brilliant stereo sound. Among the many highlights here are the unedited Dearly Beloved (which is 10 minutes longer than the LP version), the issued Oleo with an extra minute at the beginning, Rollins only known reading of Alexanders Ragtime Band, and Home Sweet Home, plus extended renditions of songs he only rarely recorded, such as Solitude and Love Walked In.
