Quite a few years ago I noticed that there was a marked difference in the trombone solo in Part 2 between copies of this recording and came to the
conclusion that I was listening to two different takes of Part 2. I could not find a discography that could verify this. So listen to the trombone solo in
Part 2 of each of these and you will see what I mean. Why this isn't mentioned in Rust or elsewhere (That I can find!) I don't know.
