The final songs of the concert, "Bye Bye Blackbird" and "The Theme," were released only on the box set Seven Steps: The Complete Columbia Recordings of Miles Davis 1963–1964, presumably because the full concert could not fit on a single CD. On the original LP, some of the tenor sax and piano solos were edited, although it still offered nearly an hour of music.[2]
