  • "Rawhide" was written by Ned Washington and Dimitri Tiomkin and was the theme for the TV show "Rawhide" which was performed by Frankie Laine. Frankie Laine's distinctive manly baritone can be heard in the opening theme songs of many Westerns, including the farcical "Blazing Saddles" (1974).
  • "Eyes" (written by Vic Thomas and Stan Vincent) by Larry Chance and the Earls peaked at only #123 on the R&B charts in 1963.
  • "You" was the Aquatones only Billboard Hot 100 Pop/Rock chart hit (b/w "She's The Only One For Me"). The Aquatones had only one other song that peaked at #119 in 1961, "Crazy For You" (b/w/ "Wanted (A Solid Gold Caddilac)").
  • "Jamie" was Eddie Holland's chart debut song.
  • The Rivieras were an R&B group from the late 1950-early 1960s who are best remembered for "Count Every Star" (1958) and "Moonlight Serenade" (1959) and not to be confused with the teenage rock band of "California Sun" fame (1964). The Rivieras were one of four major groups on the Coed label and they disbanded when their record label folded in 1961.
  • "Hurt" was Timi Yuro's chart debut hit. "Hurt" was previously a chart hit for Roy Hamilton (1955) and later a chart hit for Little Anthony And The Imperials (1966), the Manhattans (1975), and Elvis Presley (1976).
  • Tim Tam and the Turn-Ons was formed ca. 1964 in Allen Part, MI in 1964 by Rick "Tim Tam" Wiesand and brother Danny, and they are best remembered for "Wait A Minute" (1966). "Kimberly" was the flip side song of "I Leave You In Tears" released on the Palmer label (WLP PALMER 5006). "Wait a Minute," "Cheryl-Ann" and "Kimberly" are available on the hard-to-find CD "A Tribute To The Four Seasons And Their Sound - Vol. 1."
  • "Honey" by Bobby Goldsboro, which topped both the Country and Pop/Rock Billboard charts, was also a chart hit for O.C. Smith in 1969.
