CLASSIC 1936-1947 
   COUNT BASIE AND LESTER YOUNG STUDIO SESSIONS
For the purposes of this discography, only the first release of each matrix is listed. All titles in this discography were released initially on 78 except where noted. Non-U.S. releases are abbreviated (Aus) for Australia, (F) for France (It) for Italy and (Sd) for Sweden. Abbreviations to the matrix numbers include BD for breakdown and INC for incomplete.

To the best of our knowledge, this discography is presented in the order in which each take was recorded. However, the CDs contained in this set are sequenced with the master take first and then any alternates at the conclusion of the disc. Any sides that have been shown in discographies but are missing from the vaults or possibly in private collections are listed as unissued, master no longer exists. 

The following reference materials used for this discography were The Aladdin/Imperial Labels: A Discography by Michel Ruppli (Greenwood Press), Both Sides Now Publications: Philo/Aladdin Singles Discography (www.bsnpubs.com/index.html), The Complete Commodore Jazz Recordings: A Discography by Vincent Pelote and the three discographies that accompanied our Mosaic-Commodore LP sets compiled by Michael Cuscuna (via research from Milt Gabler’s original session notes), Count Basie: A Bio-Discography by Chris Sheridan (Greenwood Press) and The Jazz Discography by Tom Lord (Cadence Jazz Books). 

Label Abbreviations: Alad for Aladdin, BB for Bluebird, Br for Brunswick, Dec for Decca, Com for Commodore, EmA for EmArcy, JS for Jazz Selection, Key for Keynote, Merc for Mercury, QD for Queen Disc, Sig for Signature, Vic for Victor and Voc for Vocalion.

Note: Cole is listed as “Aye Guy” on the labels and liner notes of the above. 

The version of <SC>back to the land<XC> that is on Clef MGC-104 (LP) is an edited version and might be the reason that some discographies have incorrectly listed this as an alternate take. 

<SC>i want to be happy<XC> was originally released in the 78 album The Jazz Scene and was never assigned a catalog number although the number 2198 appears on the label and 2198-1 appears in the run-off groove.

Producer’s Note: 
The vision of this set centers around all of the Decca recordings by Count Basie from 1937 to 1939 as well as recordings by Lester Young on labels that are currently owned by Universal Music. These recordings are housed on Discs I through VII. We have also obtained the rights to include here further recordings by Lester Young that are currently under the ownership of Sony Music and are heard on Disc VIII. Because of contractual reasons we were not able to present them chronologically. 

Although the sound quality of these sessions will differ from track to track, we have made every effort to obtain the best possible source material, whether it be the original metal parts, test pressings or commercially released 78s. Therefore, the CDs in this package include a variety of sources. 

What follows is a listing of sources used for this release. MP refers to a positive (clockwise spinning) metal part while MN refers to a negative (counterclockwise spinning) metal part. ST refers to a shellac test pressing while VT refers to a vinyl test pressing. All other sources come from the original 78s unless otherwise noted and are identified by their label and catalog number.
