Session Details: 

There is some disagreement between chet baker.net and allmusic as to composers of songs. According to allmusic, there are two songs that were not composed solely by Leith Stevens, although they are not the same ones that chetbaker.net says. The latter says that lost love and rebel at work were composed by people other than Stevens, while Allmusic says People & Let Me Loved. "People" is definitely the tune by Styne/Merrill from Funny Girl, and Let me be loved is listed as being by Ray Evans and Jay Livingston elsewhere, so this is probably chetbaker.net's error.

Also, chetbaker.net conflates two separate songs ("The Search" and "The Movie Star") into one, incorrectly. However, since chetbaker.net numbers each track (even this two for one), we have still used them for the personnel variance for obvious reasons.

Finally, allmusic and chetbakertribute.com list an alternate version of "Let Me Be Loved", which the latter site lists as "vocal version". I cannot find it online to listen to, but I am making the educated guess that the vocalist is Chet Baker.
