Many errors replicated in all three releases of this key releases need to be corrected from in-hand source:

Misplacement of movements, especially tracks claimed to be A9 and B1.
Reference to CD to identify contents of alleged 1958 release, including references to works not actually in 1956-58 release at all.
Inaccurate timings.
