Session Details: 

"Track a is incorrectly listed as "One Cool Night" on all issues but it is definitely the blues called "Takin' Care 'o Business" on the February 22, 1956 session. The Lord Discography indicates that tracks a and b were recorded on February 7, 1958 which is probably a typographical error. The tracks issued on the EPs are mono and those on the LP stereo but the mono and stereo tracks have the same timings and are apparently the same takes. The saxophone solos on tracks c and d are by Jack Sels." --Noal Cohen, Lucky Thompson Discography 1957-1974.
