SPONTANEOUS LUNACY VERDICT 6/10
Samp fucked up here. This record was released in December 1949. I emailed him, we'll see if he fixes it.

It was certainly included in the 1949 Singles Battle and nobody
queried its inclusion

Here's how it did

If you read the review he explains why he thinks it was not released until August 1950. He had reviewed it originally in 1949 but he moved it.

Yes I read his review. I wasn't completely sure of its date and went
entirely by the National catalog # which seems to place it in the 1949
battle

I alerted Unca Marvy to this and he agrees with Samp now and will add this info to his Ravens article and discography.
