It is a rare session for the small Movieplay imprint featuring Jazz Messengers staple "Along Came Betty" along with three Shorter tunes, among them a less prevalent version of "Lester Left Town." The booklet that accompanies the Movieplay CD indicates only that it was recorded in Europe, in "1961" but the band's lineup, and track lengths indicate that was likely recorded December 6, 1960, at Konserthuset, Stockholm, and most of the material was previously released on the Swedish Dragon label as "Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers – Live In Stockholm 1960."
