Dolphins (NY) (Dougie & The) – Yesterday’s Dreams/ Double Date, ’59 (Angle Tone 542) (No scans found.)

The Davy/Davey Jones group of Dolphins might be two different groups.  Only one scan was found for Audicon as ‘Davy’ and it is an assumption the Sinclair and Audicon groups are the same.  The Tower 4527 scan was as ‘Davey’ and the label is located in California.
