A Love Supreme was recorded on this date in 1964, in one take.


1523, from M.Fr. suprême, from L. supremus “highest,” superlative of superus “situated above,” from super, “above.”

from L. adverb and preposition super “above, over, on the top (of), beyond, besides, in addition to,” from PIE base *uper “over (cf. Skt. upari, Avestan upairi “over, above, beyond,” Gk. hyper...Goth. ufaro over, across...)

Or, you know, just listen to Beans' verse in “What We Do.”
