-Those by Nat Gonella and Brian Lawrence are alternatives to those previously released.
-The vocalists named are correct to the best of our knowledge.
-The quality of some of the records and masters used in these transfers left much to be desired, and so a certain amount of noise and imperfections may be noticeable on some tracks. It is hoped that this will not detract from your enjoyment.
