Already a whole topic devoted to this release.

*Or* is this new "November  1, 2019" issue really volume 2??  I think(?) I've got Volume 1 already (iirc), and I'm pretty sure(?) that it's just *one CD* (but I could easily be misremembering).  So what's going on here, with a new(?) 2 CD issue that's somehow the same, or related, or vol 2? - or it's vol 1 (but only it's 2 CDs?), and it's it really 2CDs?

Anyway, the thread about vol 1 is here, fwiw...

 

OH WAIT, THIS NEW RELEASE IS FROM 1979.

And the earlier one is from 1982.

THAT'S what's going on here.

This looks fantastic. 

In some ways, this '79 group looks even MORE enticing than the '82 band on Woody's other Onkel Pö's set.

Don't get me wrong. I love Mulgrew. ... But hearing Onaje and Carter Jefferson in Shaw's band. That's something else.

As am I. Woody Shaw is one of those artists I’ll buy just about anything by, especially when his name is on the spine.

I’ll have to look, but I think I’ve got close to a dozen live hours of Woody on various legit releases, maybe closer to 15 hours, come to think of it. And most of it is close to stunning.

Ordered! Love this series, including the quite attractive pricing. Thanks, @soulpope.

Interesting that both sets are "vol. 1". Looks like there is hope for some future "vol. 2".

Yes I noticed this only with the Woody Shaw Albums. I have the first with the Group I saw myself (Steve Turré , Mulgrew Miller, Stafford James and Tony Reedus) and it´s also "Vol. 1"...…. really strange…...

Wasn´t Carter Jefferson later with Elvin Jones.

I think he´s also on the Elvin Jones "At Uncle Poe´s " from About 1981. A fantastic double CD also.....

Yep .... one of the few Carter Jefferson sideman appearances in the 80`s .... probably the best being this one :

I guess the new 1979 recording was supposed to be vol. 2 but someone messed it up during production. There were misprints before: The LP version of the 1982 recording lists the bonus track "Diane" as the second track on the C side (both on the cover and on the record's center label). It actually is the first track on the D side. Also wrong on discogs etc.

On the other hand, Woody announces the last track on the D side as the one concluding their "first set". This suggests that vol. 2 might be the recording of their second set (on that evening I assume).

Another obscure Carter Jefferson appearance. Never been on CD, iirc.

The sound quality on this series is stunning, and there is magic in the music.  Even titles I felt lukewarm about before listening(Chet Baker, Griff/Jaws) have knocked me out!
