Notes
Information on takes listed as issued for this release is based on documentation found in the Columbia Master Book. The compiler of the CMB relied, in part, on examination of Columbia matrix cards. These cards indicate which takes were approved, or given the "OK" for mastering so metal parts could be produced. However, when multiple takes were approved for production it is not confirmed that all were issued. Further information may be found in this article.
