Can someone knowledgeable about the recorded studio work of Roy Orbison tell me who are the female back-up singers on the version of 'Candyman' that was released on 'In dreams: The greatest hits'?

Discogs lists the following for the entire CD:
Backing Vocals – Gene Morford, Jim Haas, Joe Chemay, Jon Joyce, Linda Dillard, Rita Coolidge
Backing Vocals, Other [Vocal Director] – Carol Parks*

But I want to know specifically who is doing the back-ups on 'Candyman'.
