this is perhaps even better ,certainly better recorded when one compares the original lps.

Wow!!!! This is powerful. I've been listening to Mal Waldron's recordings on Enja records, I must say that this Mal Waldron collaboration with Steve Lacy to me is by far the most stunning and ranks right up there with the BVHaast records Mal Waldron, Jeanne Lee and Toru Tenda
"Travelin' in Soul-Time"
Thank You for making this available.

I've been a fan of Waldron and Lacy for years, but separately, never together--I can't wait to check this out, thanks!

Mal Waldron's releases during the early '70's are, without doubt, his greatest. Those with Steve Lacy's groups are the best of them. I've never come across "Journey Without End" before. Many thanks for this posting. And even more thanks for your terrific site!

A perfect album. True 10-stars!A super-pac needs to be established to push for this to be made "Real".Kent Carter and the way-underated Noel McGhie deserve special mention. Bozo is speechless, just a wonderful album to be savoured for a lifetime!
