    This, along with Horace Silver's Jody Grind, are the only Blue Note titles missing their master tapes. May be a long time before seeing a proper reissue.

      The NYC mono version does not exist.
      After July, 1962, Mono and Stereo versions were issued at the same time, but from catalogue number 4248 the mono records have blue and white Liberty labels while the stereo 4000 series has NYC labels through 84252.
