According to Jeff Sultanof, the version of 'Round Midnight that Carmen recorded on this session used a lyric by Jon Hendricks, which was unauthorized. The publisher would not grant a license for it's release, so it was not issued.

The track does exist though, on an acetate of all four of these sides in the Warner Brothers vaults.
