The original edited version of "Guinnevere" (released in 1979 on Circle in the Round) contains splices at 0:18 and 16:56; the introduction is shortened by about 1:23, and another 1:23 or so is removed from near the end. It fades out near the end.

While larger groups were recording new compositions in the studio (fourteen sessions in the first half of 1970!), the Davis Sextet was very busy with live dates: Village Gate, New York (January 2-3, 6-10); Cellar Door, Washington (January 12-17); Spectrum, Philadelphia (January 18); Hill Auditorium, Ann Arbor (February 21); Fillmore East, New York (March 6-7); Fillmore West, San Francisco (April 9-12); Both/And Club, San Francisco (April 28).
