I prefer this early "Best of..." anthology to the "Very Best of .. ." collection. The latter is a Rudy Van Gelder remaster distinguished primarily by "enhanced" (i.e. boosted) drums. The prior version offers a better balance, making it easier to maintain focus strictly on the genius of Bud Powell's playing.

As for "John's Abbey," this version is taken from Bud's studio recording, "Time Waits." His performance of the tune on "Bud Powell at the Essen Jazz Festival Concert" is significantly better, a near-flawless performance with the unbeatable support of Oscar Pettiford (b) and Kenny Clarke (d), two giants whose stature approaches Bud's.
