Session Details: 

This was a soundtrack to a film. The track of Oop-pop-a-da was originally called "Dizzy's Untitled  Original". Only able to find evidence of this session in bruyninckx. -JS

Also, I am assuming, as in past sessions, that "Dynamo" is really just "Dizzy Atmosphere", http://books.google.com/books?id=OKkX3ZL60_cC&lpg=PA74&ots=7bm5UyUFZA&dq...

Listening to tracks online labeled "Dynamo" and "Dizzy Atmosphere", they appear to be the exact same composition. -JS
