Because I am missing basic data about the following issues, I have been unable to enter them in the sessionography's log. Help would be appreciated.

1. The Many Sides of Chris Connor (Victor/Atlantic 7070; Japan).
I need its track listing and its release year.

2. Chris Connor Sings Love And Sadness (Victor/Atlantic 7351; Japan).
I am missing its track listing and its release year.

3. Teo Macero Presents Chris Connor.
The scant data about this LP available to me suggests that it might have been a special, for-disc-jockeys-only issue of the Japanese CBS album Chris Moves. I'm looking for corroboration.

4. Manhattan Melodies, Featuring Chris Connor (1960; United States Air Force Recruiting Service LP, Program #262).
I have not seen or listened to this album, but I do have its songlist. Because all the listed songs are tunes that Connor recorded for Atlantic Records, there is a strong possibility that this album consists of Connor recordings borrowed from Atlantic's vaults. Until full details come forth, however, we should not discard the possibility that she might have performed fresh versions of those Atlantic numbers for this USAFRS show.

5. Manhattan Melodies, Featuring Chris Connor (1960; United States Air Force Recruiting Service LP, Program #321).
My note about the previous album (#4) entirely applies to this one, too, except for the fact that I do not know which songs are included in it. I do know, however, that the total of Connor numbers is four, and that all of them are also heard in her Witchcraft LP.
She is featured in only one side of this Manhattan Melodies installment, and there is talk between her and the announcer. The other side is dedicated to Richard Hyman and his music. My thanks to Robert Gray for telling me about these details.

6. The United States Army Presents The Steve Lawrence Show, Featuring Chris Connor, Program No. 62.
I would like to know which numbers are sung by Chris Connor in this LP, and whether they are the same or different from any (Atlantic, FM, ABC) studio counterparts.

7. Guest Star (U.S. Treasury Department), Program No. 1024.
Tracks unknown. Imprinted on the the label of this disc are the words "do not play before 11-7-66." If that date is any indication, this disc could contain cuts taken from Now!, Connor's 1966 album on ABC-Paramount. Only one side of the disc features Chris Connor. Bob Carroll is the artist spotlighted on the other side.

8. Stars For Defense (Office Of Civil Defense), With Chris Connor, Program No. 545.
Tracks unknown. Imprinted on the the label of this disc are the words "do not play before March 19, 1967." Only one side of the disc features Chris Connor. Vaughn Monroe is the artist spotlighted on the other side.

9. Bethlehem's Finest, Volume 10 (Bethlehem LP BCP-4010).
I would like to know the title of the one vocal sung by Chris Connor in this volume. The year of release, too.

I urge readers to contribute toward the goal of making this discography as complete as possible. In addition to any information on the above-listed albums, please, do also let me know about other missing data of relevance, such as unlisted TV/Radio appearances, or additional concert dates (even if the performance is not extant on audio or video).
