Label: Prestige Records - Catalog #: PRCD-7129-2 - UPC: 025218482721

  • Tracks #1, #2, #3 and #4 recorded October 26, 1956 in New York
  • Tracks #5 and #6 recorded May 11, 1956 in New York

Note:
Oleo should really be ~6'18, while the bundled edition of Cookin'/Relaxin' has it below 6'. *Maybe* the ids here giving Oleo under 6' are homebrew made from the twofer. Needs to be verified, though.
