Co 4-46074, PG 32866,
CBS(F) 4504721
Note: *: Omit Grossman
Co 106738 is edited on Co 4-46074 (matrix ZSS 159786) and includes a part of Davis' solo only (02:32). This 45 rpm verion was mistakenly issued on CBS(F) 4504721 as ‘The Little Blue Frog’. 2 non-complete-versions of ‘Go Ahead John’ (11:44 and 03:59) sandwich an unidentified blues (12:31) in which Davis and Grossman are heard playing against a pre-recorded machine loop. The way the music is edited for release resembles ‘Jack Johnson’ (see 700407) and is therefor probably a preliminary study.
