Friends (Brooklyn) as Gary & Friends – The Balloon Song/ It Is Spring, ’61 (Josie 890-DJ Promo label) (Both sides are by a prepubescent Gary & Friends.  The Friends sound like the same as on ‘The Yen Yet Song’ but Gary is several years younger than the Shell releases.  The Josie titles are likely (previously unreleased)(discogs.com/Gary-And-His-Friends-The-Balloon-Song/rel…) dates as 1959 which might be the recording date.)
