1. Master Numbers
These performances lack sequential master numbers; it is possible they were recorded separately and/or during split sessions with other artists. There are no session logs for Dot, and further details are unknown.

2. "I Can't Help It"
This performance bears a mono designation because it features a simulated stereo effect on the "Margaret" album, and was probably recorded in mono only.
