1 - These dubs from disc were made by Lomax from the Permanent Record Library of the BBC in Glasgow, presumably with the forthcoming Columbia World Library albums in mind. Original recordists, dates, locations, and accession numbers when known, are listed in specific tracks' notes. [Source: Editor]
2 - The tape box credits for T3397 and T3398 are very jumbled, or the contents of these tapes were later cut into different combinations and kept stored in their original tape boxes. We have tried to identify the performers and performances to the best of our ability. [Source: Editor]
