Session Details: 

Some discrepancies between Ruppli's, Bruyninckx and Jazzdisco, but between them a definitive version can be seen. Also, Not sure why there is a "part 2" next to the "One Bass Hit", but in other sessions there is a "part 1". However, after listening to the two tracks, they appear to be the same composition, so that's confusing. -JS
