1. Performances are combined into one session due to lack of available information about recording dates and personnel.

2. Master numbers with asterisk (*) indicate an educated guess for performances b, d., and may in fact be reversed. No single was issued for those performances, therefore the numbers cannot be confirmed.

3. It's unclear whether the K-tel versions of a-c. are distinct performances, or if they are in fact the Gusto recordings, as reported here. "Baby" reports a timing difference between the Gusto and K-tel issues, however "Misty Blue" does not.
