Album Cover
Michel Portal, John Surman, Barre Phillips, Stu Martin, Jean-Pierre Drouet
Alors !!!

Single FR on Futura Records label
Jazz (Free Jazz)

Extremely rare 7" version released by Futura at the same period as the album. According to Gérard Terronès, the version of the tracks "OO Bam Ba Deep" & "Undercurrent" are supposed to be slight different versions of the tracks that features on the album. Recorded on the same day as the LP Alors!!! but in another studio. If this is correct they went from one studio to another for recording two slightly different versions, only. On the back cover it is written that these two tracks are extracts from the LP. [John Surman is credited for alto saxophone, this is probably wrong - much more likely he's playing baritone saxophone, instead.]
