Companies, etc.



Made in Australia on Labels. W&G STEREOPHON!C silver sticker attached to front cover. W&G printed below Time on Labels. Printed in U.S.A. on rear cover. Suggesting that this is an Australian release using a US produced cover. Because W&G have attached a sticker and printed their name on the labels I don't believe this is a mis-marriage of the wrong vinyl in the wrong cover.

Master release Al Caiola & Orch.* - Percussion Español Vol. 2 and all other versions show Track A5 as Vito Paso Double. My version on Label and Rear Cover and those versions with images attached suggest this should be Vito Paso Doble.

Track A3 Guadalajara is credited to Rangel. There appears to be a number of different versions of this song title with many writers. I believe that this is the classic Mexican mariachi song written and composed by Pepe Guízar in 1937. But I have credited it to Rangel as per Label. Unsure of which Rangel so added as Written By.

Track A4 credited to Barciliata on label. Should be Lorenzo Barcelata

Track A6 credited to Madriguele on label. Should be Enric Madriguera.

Track B4 was originally known as "Cielito lindo" a popular Mexican song popularized in 1882 by Mexican author Quirino Mendoza y Cortés. I have given him Uncredited writing credits.

Confusion over cat#'s. 52026 on Cover and S-2026 on Labels

Addtional Piccolo credited to Phil Bodner, Romeo Penque, Stan Webb and Walt Levinsky.

Artist & Repertoire credited to Bob Shad. Album Coordination credited to Arpena Spargo.
