Cameos (Beltone Group?) – Comin’ On Down (Unreleased), ’62 (Relic LP 5028 B7)

(#5028 is ‘The Best Of Beltone’ with the back cover crediting the artist as The Cameos.  Relic CD #7066 (a reissue of #5028 with 7 additional tracks) credits ‘Comin’ Down With Love’ to The Headliners.  All versions I’ve heard are the same.  The Headliners also release this song on Beltone #2020 in 1962.  No reference was found to link the Headliners as the Cameos.)
