There is a compilation of Miles Davis's early 50's recordings on Blue Note called Miles Davis Volume 1. I found the album on this site in Miles Davis's compilations, but much of the album info is incorrect. This is what I have on my CD:

1. Dear Old Stockholm
2. Chance it (alternate take)
3. Chance it
4. Donna (alternate take)
5. Donna
6. Woody 'n you (alternate take)
7. Woody 'n you
8. Yesterdays
9. How Deep is the Ocean
10. Take Off
11. Lazy Susan
12. The Leap
13. Well you needn't
14. Weirdo
15. It Never Entered my Mind

#1-9: MILES DAVIS, trumpet; J.J. JOHNSON, trombone; JACKIE McLEAN, alto sax; GIL COGGINS, piano; OSCAR PETTIFORD, bass; KENNY CLARKE, drums.

#10-15: MILES DAVIS, trumpet; HORACE SILVER, piano; PERCY HEATH, bass; ART BLAKEY, drums.

Are they all alternate takes, even though only some are listed as such?

Bass Oscar Pettiford (tracks: A5, B2 to B4, B6), Percy Heath (tracks: A1 to A4, A6)

About this release

12" Blue Note LP - BLP 1501 (US)

Miles Davis Vol.1 and Vol.2 were the first ever released 12" LPs by Blue Note (with numbers BLP 1501 and 1502) and collected all tracks from the three 10" albums that were recorded and released in 1952 (Young Man With a Horn), 1953 (Miles Davis, Vol.2) and 1954 (Miles Davis, Vol.3) plus alternate takes. They were re-released as CDs in chronological sequence and (later) with the old 10" covers

Your track list looks like one of many reissues of this original album on CD (most probably Blue Note  CDP 7 81501 2 from 1988). We always add original (first edition) info for every album (at least when possible).
