Notes

Dial offered this LP exclusively via a mail-in order coupon in the June 3, 1949 issue of Downbeat magazine. Appropriately described, this “Limited Mail Order Edition,” sold for $5.00 plus shipping (twice the price of standard LPs at the time), no doubt a factor in Dial selling very few.
Jazz historians estimate less than 100 sold, some believing the total closer to 25.
