This source indicates the following: The alternative titles in parenthesis were arbitrarily assigned by producers Mark Gardner and Alan Bates when the recordings that make up the CD Candid 79035 were discovered (without titles except for track 1). The equivalences with Thompson's titles, recorded only from radio broadcasts, were apparently not known when the CD was issued but finally discovered in 2006 by saxophonist Chris Byars when he auditioned the radio broadcast of April 28, 1961 (NDR Jazz Workshop No. 19). So far, the original Thompson title for track 5 has not been found. Candid CD 79035 includes a 4:40 spoken introduction by Thompson recorded on March 20, 1968 with piano accompaniment apparently by him.
