RECORDING SESSIONS AND PERSONNEL
For every recording session I have listed the complete instrumentation as heard on the record, together with the names of the actual or assumed personnel if possible. I have never referred to earlier sessions (such as ‘as before’) to simplify identification and to avoid confusion. The names of musicians are listed in the manner below:
Documented, most certain and aurally absolutely obvious identifications are listed thus:
Probable, generally agreed (by our group and others), but not documented identifications are listed thus:
Aural possible identification for an unknown musician without documented evidence in support:
Assumptions without documented evidence (‘educated guess’):
Not attributable identifications – although the musician in question might be an otherwise well known person:
Musicians names as documented on record labels or recording documents are listed thus:
A number in brackets behind a vocal or instrument mark means that you hear this in the given sequence of titles of this very session.
First column lists the original record issued (taken from Rust*6 or W.C. Allen). Abbreviations of record labels are as by Rust.
Second column lists a recent largely distributed CD issue, or – if not issued on CD – a LP issue of the past.
