Quality control alert. Really need some diligent cleanup on the entries - in particular, the first album and the initial pressing of 2nd album "Aladdin" - as regards the listing of "Rotary Connection" versus "The Rotary Connection." From what I can tell after some (admittedly succinct) research, the band called itself simply Rotary Connection, and the first album was also titled "Rotary Connection" despite a misstep on the part of the company or pressing plant that had the LP labels read "The Rotary Connection" on all the early pressings, an error that was subsequently caught and corrected. Similarly, for "Aladdin" the LP labels create confusion that runs rampant through the Discogs listings, which have been rendered wildly inconsistent, as even a quick glance at the photos associated with the various entries for that title reveals.

I think Phil Upchurch must be added to this line up.

Yep. Upchurch is clearly listed on my copy of the first album.

Both of the 45s you mention have since been submitted to Discogs.
