The two reissues presented herein include the last sessions that Donald would record with his brother, bookending a turning point  in Ayler’s music. The Village Theater sessions, from late 1966 and early 1967 (the latter without Donald) mark, arguably, a high point in his work to that date, where the musical ecstasy he sought was as close to realization as he ever achieved – and new avenues may have been opening up – whereas ‘Love Cry’, from the summer of 1967, indicates at least partially a pivot point, redirecting the music toward, it was hoped, a more popular reception.  – Brian Olewnick
