The title of cd2 track 11 is wrong: the correct title is "You Ain't Gonna Know Me, 'Cause You Think You Know Me", as you can see in almost all albums including that wonderful composition, which is also, together with Standfast, the only (as far as I know) released track from those live recordings of the Baden-Baden Workshop Band. It was released by Cuneiform in 1996 on Gary Windo's "His Master's Bones", now out of print (http://cuneiformrecords.com/bandshtml/windo.html). According to such cd's liner notes, the date is 1976-November-25th.

Thanks for posting the Baden Baden Free Jazz Concerts (1968, 1971, and 1976). Unfortunately, all the links are dead or no longer work correctly. Would it be possible to revive them, especially the 1968 and 1971 stuff? (Whine, grovel....)

Wonderful stuff on this blog, by the way.
