Annotation

Originally recorded in the 1950s. Digitaly remastered at a later time. Disc liner is not clear wether this 2010 compilation was remaster or if this is just a new compilation of earlier remasters.

Also track times are from the disk liner, but FLAC rips from this disk are a 2-3 seconds longer that reported. Actually track lengths nearly identical to the times reported on other matching AcoustIDs recordings.
