I confirmed that the following tracks (from the Sep. 26, 1958 session with
Hal Mooney Orchestra)
are included in monaural on "The Complete Sarah Vaughan on Mercury Vol. 3"
(Nippon Phonogram 18PJ-1041/46, 826 333-1).
My copy is 6LP edition, which I believe is equivalent to 6CD edition.
17990-7 Cool Baby
18018-10 Everything I Do
18019-14 I Ain't Hurtin'
18020-6 Disillusioned Heart
That five volume discography by Ruppli mentions the master number of "Cool
17990-7 (PB 4374), so at least the "Cool Baby" was mastered both in mono
at that time. Not sure for other three tracks. I guess three-track stereo
master tapes might
exist still in the vaults (but AFAIK not mastered to two tracks nor
released yet in the past).
