November 27 or November 26?
November 27 is the date mentioned by Jim Marshall in his Jo Stafford Discography. According to one Capitol discographer, however, these three tracks were recorded on the same day as ‘Just One Of Those Things’ - November 26. On http://popculturefanboy.blogspot.nl/2011_11_01_archive.html we read, under the heading ‘On this day in recording history’ (‘this day’ is November 26): 
‘1947 - Jo Stafford (on vocals), with Paul Weston and His Orchestra (lineup unlisted), records the tracks "Just One Of Those Things", "Through The Years", "In The Still Of The Night", and the (as of 2005) unissued track "Alice Blue Gown" in Los Angeles, California’.
