In addition, the first recordings by Tony Allen may have been released already in c. 1952 on Aries label. The 78 rpm record is rumored to contain the songs “Angel Child” and “Check Yourself”. However, the existence of this disc has not yet been confirmed.

The 1967 United Artists 45 rpm release “Triple Cross” / “Now Is Forever” (Love Theme) (instrumental) (UA 50190) as by Tony Allen probably features another artist of the same name. The music is from the motion picture soundtrack of the United Artists movie “Triple Cross”.
