This begins to make sense if Songs For John Doe was intended as K-102 before 
Keynote put some distance between themselves and it, but 6 Songs was originally 
Music Room 101 and the Topic-sourced set was Music Room 102..maybe MR 102 
disappeared quickly and the two numbers became Keynote album numbers.
