Session Details: 

Bruyninckx lists Valdes as "Carlo Valdez", but based on other sources, it is clearly Patato Valdes. Bruyninckx also corroborates that "Diddy Wa Diddy" was also known as Mozambique. However, wikipedia and discogs list Timet as also having the alternate title "Mozambique", but there is no indication why two different tunes would have the same alternate title. -JS
