The complete original album Far Cry (Prestige/New Jazz 8270), featuring Eric Dolphy in a quintet format with another star who passed away before his time, trumpeter Booker Little.

Among the many highlights are an outstanding version of the Billie Holiday-Mal Waldron ballad "Left Alone"and Dolphy's unaccompanied alto sax reading of "Tenderly". As a bonus, two tunes originally issued under the name the Jazz Artists Guild, both of which were recorded on the same date on November 1, 1960, and each featuring one of the stars of Far Cry: Dolphy on "T'Ain't Nobody's Business if I Do", and Little on "Cliff Walk".
