Session Details: 

Complete transcription of William Williams' announcements are on www.plosin.com. According to Sutherland & Burton, Joe Sullivan plays only on 'Anthropology', but Losin lists both Sullivan and Mike Caluccio as regular personnel. However, in Losin's transcriptions of the announcerments, it's clear that Sullivan played the first tune, and Caluccio played the rest, so it's not really a controversy or anything. -JS
