The following comment by Fred Gallant on a youtube video clarifies many misconceptions about the group and the songs.

  ‘Let me set the record straight. Mary Lee was recorded at a home studio in Seattle, WA. in 1960. The lead vocal was done by Seattle local Gary Tobin. Wayne Gust played guitar, his brother Eddie played bass, Dennis Lyons played piano and Fred Gallant played drums. The background vocals were done by local Seattle gals. Mary Lee was placed on the flip side of the 45 Searchin’ For Love by the Devilles. The Devilles provided the backing on Mary Lee as a favour to the producer. FRED GALLANT.’)

    • Oops! The book was correct but I reversed the ‘ue’. Thanks for your great eyesight. Also, I’ve added the DeVille Sisters to the post.
