Notes

A very good hard-bop set, specially remarkable for it features what appears to be Booker Little first recorded session.
Note that everything here is on Roach's Mosaic Mercury boxset disc 3, along with stereo takes of Shirley, My Old Flame, Memo and Stompin'.
This at some point was possibly released by Mercury MG 20559, not to be confused with the (apparently never released) Mercury SR 60128 (later on Mercury J 195J 41) which contained the same program replacing the mono by the stereo takes.
