The side A conceals an anecdote that I wanted to underline! On the TWO editions of this record on Hit Records (No. 105 and No. 260) the signer is identified as "Bill Austin". Definitely a "mis-print" !! Austin, who sang other songs on the same label is a boy, while the signer heard on "You Do not Own Me" cleary has a feminine voice!

The truth is that the singer is not Bill Austin but Connie Dee who also recorded on this label under the name of Connie Landers and sometimes simply under the name of Connie. She is also credited with songs under the name Joanne Kay.

Born in 1944 in Austin, Connie Sue Landers was part of the Auctionettes (accompanying Leroy Van Dyke). She had also formed the Teen-Notes when she was only 14 years old and then "Connie and The Cones" who recorded two 45s on Roulette Records published in 1960. It was after the break-up of the band that Connie lent her talents to Hit Records for 4 years.
