"In our excitement about this reissue, we leapt at getting copies from the distributor, but realized after the fact that we are not 100% certain of how authorized it is, and are unable to gain conformation. In this light, we offer it to our costumers with a light disclaimer to this end." (Soundohm)

The boys in the band introduce themselves in this edition of cricket

http://www.ayler.co.uk/html/cricket.html

it's the seventh page from the end under the headline "Gossip". "We, the Black Unity Trio welcome a free exchange of ideas and will assist you in any way possible." Otherwise, Cellist Abdul Wadud is by far the best known member of the band with an extensive discography...

Saxophonist Joe Phillips a/k/a Yusef Mumin was also in trumpeter Norman Howard's group, which cut a proposed LP for ESP that was later issued on cassette by Homeboy Music and then some of that came out on an ESP CD several years ago. Drummer Haasan Al-Hut has, to my knowledge, not appeared on anything else. It's a great, great record -- have had a CD-R of it for many years.

A second Black Unity Trio LP was recorded but remains unreleased. Not sure if the masters survived.
