Ray Charles & Fred Dunn - Ray Charles

Another low budget lp with 3 early Ray Charles tracks as a selling point but also with 7 tracks from Fred Dunn on piano.
Fred's boogie woogie recordings date from 1946 all recorded for the Signature label  in New York.
Don't know if they have been re-released on lp or cd before.
Thanks got to the person who left the correct track listing in the comments.

The Fred Dunn tracks have been issued on the CD Back Alley boogie RST 91629-2. I guess this is or was (because I'm not sure they are still operating) a german outfit. Anyway congratulations for giving a new life to those very very rare LP's and 45's
