Session Details: 

Bruyninckx only lists personnel as "possible personnel of the period", so I'm just guessing with these names, since they are the orchestra with which Diz recorded most of the surrounding dates. -JS

 

Also, the parenthetical title for "Dynamo" is my addition. According to Lawrence Koch's book, Dizzy Atmosphere was originally titled Dynamo, and was mislabelled as such in some subsequent issues. Since Bruyninckx appears to have gotten this info from an issue, and a CD reissue at that, I wouldn't be surprised if Dynamo is Dizzy Atmosphere, as Koch mentions here, for a different session: http://books.google.com/books?id=OKkX3ZL60_cC&lpg=PA74&ots=7bm5UyUFZA&dq...
