Note: "The Sky" was omitted in CD editions released during 1980s and 1990s due to efforts to make the whole double-LP to fit to one CD. This track is included in recent CD editions (the absolute length of audio CDs has increased over the years due to more efficient designing systems) along with the previously unreleased track "The Clouds". Due to consolidation in the record industry over the later part of the 20th century, recent issues of the album are now on Verve Records, a label that specializes in jazz.
