I cannot verify the accuracy of all these facts but I think they are correct for the most part. Missing Angel was first recorded in 1961 (September I believe) but it was not released in his lifetime).Then, it was cut again in 1962 (November).
Both versions are available on the "Welcome to my World" superset of 15 or 16 Cds. Cheers!
