Note:  Label pics available indicate the Ohio Four Jacks sang as a group and provided backup to several singers.  The Herbie Layne’s Orchestra is credited on labels I found.  Sources vary on dates (1955-1957).  On some songs, the solo artist is added on either the Gateway or Big 4 Hits label.  The Great Pretender on the Gateway label shows this by the Four Jacks.  Multiple sources list the Dusters as doing this song on both labels.  The book lists the Dusters on the Big 4 Hits label only, but it is likely it is the Four Jacks.
