—"Though listed on side A of the LP, ‘Time II’ occupies the first band on the record's B side."
Track 12: "Dixon's flugelhorn solo is incomplete due to a tape switch on the video original,
 but that tape still holds roughly 30 seconds following his first phrase that do not appear on the record."
Track 13: "LP timed at 8:45. That piece too was probably edited for Thoughts."

Bill Dixon (p, tp, flg, Comp), Marco Eneidi (as), John Buckingham (tu), William Parker, Peter Kowald, and Mario Pavone (b), Lawrence Cook (dr)
—"The basses were independently recording-baffled to isolate their sounds."

Robert D. Rusch, from the liners:
"By the time the trio arrived, in mid-afternoon of May 17, I really was not sure where their focus was. Lisle now informed me "a little of this, a little of that."
Uh huh. However, as this was the end of an extensive tour (at one point involving 21 dates in 21 days) that eventually would cover some 8,000 plus miles of driving,
I had confidence that the trio had a pretty good idea of what they were doing and that this would be a pretty seamless recording experience...

...The group opened the session on the relaxed, sultry "Contractual Obligation Blues". The first take had beauty but was relaxed to the point of diffuseness.
The second take (issued here) was a lesson in how to burn while staying cool. After that it took awhile for the group to get into what might be called a coordinated
unconsciousness. That finally came together on the second take of "News Blues", when they reached a point when all distractions were suspended except
the musical activity and interactivity.

At this point, Lisle explained how after a month of playing this music suite-like in hour-long sets, they were now trying to pry it apart and, in effect, present each piece
in its own setting. This was not going to be as seamless as I'd imagined. Nevertheless, by the end of the evening's session, we had the better part of this release
logged in, bringing the evening to an end and just short of fatigue with a single take on "Baby Please Don't Go".

The morning of the 18th was warm, wet, and dreary and the opening session was addressed in a leisurely manner. After some warm up and run-throughs,
Lisle said they were going to run through, as in rehearse, "American Roadwork", to which Peter responded, "So record it." And so we did; it is issued here.
Sometimes it seems that simple. The trio followed this with "Dreamt Up Blues #6 Pt.1", a piece with a somewhat tentative beginning which builds powerfully
over Peter's solid mosaic of percussion then settles down only to rejuvenate its powerful edgy assault. Its first wave sets you up, only to sucker punch you
with the second. Marco's comment at the end was "Yes! ... good morning."

We finished the day with "Vienna Blues", one of those ballads of which Marco spoke to me the previous year. And then they launched into "Short & Clean"
as sort of a tag to the two days' work."

MARCO ENEIDI, 1956-2016 (obtuary written by Michael Ehlers)
"the eremite family grieves the death of marco eneidi. marco passed away 24 may in pleasanton, CA. a consummate & uncompromising free jazz alto saxophonist, marco was an authentic heir to the legacies of his friend glenn spearman & his primary artistic role model jimmy lyons. marco played hard, he rode hard, & he earned it. pre-deceased by his jazz family of denis charles, raphe malik, jim pepper, & spearman, among others, marco will live on through his brilliant music. his body of work, on his own botticelli imprint, & on eremite, rates right up there with the strongest free jazz of its era. condolences to his son nikko & to all the musicians who made the journey with him."
