Issue Details: 

On the LP, Mama's Blues is titled "Blues Chante", one of its alternate titles. "Dizz' Tune" is titled "Mrs. Diz" on the same issue. It doesn't appear that these are mislabeled, per se, since jazzdisco and Bruyninckx imply that the titles were interchangeable. Curiously, Jazzdisco does not list all of these tracks as being part of the issue, but Discogs comes from the actual physical album. -JS
