Never Let Me Go (Alternate) · Bill Evans

Alone was recorded at Webster Hall in the East Village, which was reserved for two recording sessions in October of 1968. A Steinway & Sons concert grand piano model D-274 was chosen by Bill Evans for this recording.

Released in April 1970 [2] , the Grammy Award-winning Alone was Bill Evans’ first single piano solo album following in the footsteps of his 1963 Verve session Conversations with Myself (three pianos overdubbed) and his 1967 Further Conversations with Myself, also on Verve (two pianos overdubbed). It has been reissued in various forms with additional tracks and alternate takes from sessions on September 23, October 8 and 21st.[3]
