    • Thanks to you for being part of such great music. Regrettably I’ve not heard either side. A news article says the group was formerly The Nomads but it appears they are unlisted in the book. Group members are listed as Jim Allen, Don Allen, Dick Maness & Buz Miller.)

    • Label location and some sources say Cincinnati (owner: Harry Carlson). 45cat says Cleveland and my post is under Four Kings (Cleveland). I need more information if the group is from Dayton? Can you help and maybe offer some group member details?
