Notes: Vic Lewis announces that the recording takes place on

Roy East’s thirtieth birthday but this would have been on

May 30 1960 whereas documentation shows the date as above.

The personnel list above is speculative but probably largely accurate.

The Recording from which these details have been gleaned is of

very poor quality.
