Note: As there are no track sources listed in the CD sleeve notes, I got the most probable sources from the wonderful Complete Topic Records Discography by Mike Brocken, Alistair Banfield & Rod Stradling. In cases of doubt I took the oldest recording I could find. Of course, all remaining errors are mine.
