055534-1 Pig Foot Sonata Vic 26793
055535-1 Charlie Was A Sailor (DD-vcl) Vic 26739

Note: Matrix 055533-1 is listed in discographies as being issued on Victor 26739. However, the file cards and ledgers list only -2 as being scheduled for
release and copies of Victor 26739 we have examined contain only -2 as the master. One of the many reissues claiming they used -1 but actually used -2,
is the LP box set The Complete Lionel Hampton / 1937-1941 (Bluebird AXM6-5536).

(U) LIONEL HAMPTON & HIS SEXTETTE: Lionel Hampton (vib), Sir Charles Thompson (p), Irving Ashby (g),
Vernon Alley (b), Lee Young (d, vcl), Hampton Rhythm Girls (Evelyn Myers and 2 unknown) (vcl).

same session
055230-1 Altitude Vic 27316
055231-1 Fiddle-Dee-Dee Vic 27364

Note: Matrix 055228-1 is listed in discographies as being issued on Victor 27278, however, this take has eluded us and therefore we cannot
confirm its existance. In addition, the metal part (and any test pressings) are no longer in the physical posession of BMG.
The CD release on Classics 624 (Lionel Hampton 1941) and RCA (J) 90-95 (LP) both list Lost Love as using -1, however, -2 is the take that is used.
