Notes
The copy of Col 542 found in the Rigler-Deutsch Index is titled only "Pirates of Penzance." The performing ensemble is identified as "Band."
Brooks/Rust also notes that this matrix number was assigned to different titles on Climax and Columbia. The master numbers are distinguished here by "a" and "b," but they were not so marked originally.
Brooks/Rust associates two different ensembles with the recording sessions that include this master number. However it is not known whether one of them, or a different ensemble, is responsible for the recordings that are unattributed here.
