Session Details: 

Doctor Jazz only lists the two takes of Sidewalk Blues, but the Victor records library at UC Santa Barbara indicates there were two other tracks that were, apparently, "destroyed". For both Sidewalk Blues and Dead Man Blues, the tracks marked "unissued" as well as alternate are the ones that Victor lists as 'destroyed'. Usually we don't call tracks unissued because there is always a chance they turn up someplace, but since the actual Victor library says they were destroyed, we will list as such. -JS
