    • Thanks for the MusicNote 119 b-side link. I’m not sure about these Del-Satins; are they the Dion-related group or someone different. Their group history does not mention the Audicon segment of their career.

  1. Stan Ziska of The Del-Satins produced rhe CDs “Del-Satins Back From Lunch” Vols 1&2.

    I Wanna Know / Is It A Dream is on Vol. 1.

    On Vol. 2 are several unreleased Bill Baker songs.

    Just To Be Near You / To The Aisle is on the CD “Bill Baker and his groups”.

    Stan Ziska also mentions the backup work for Bill Baker in his Del-Satins biography.

    • We can validate Bill Baker’s uncredited Audicon BB through Stan Zizka’s Del-Satins’ biography. The book does not include the Del-Satins’ comps but the information they contain is valuable support. Thanks for all your work.

    • ( shows both the Audicon for ‘Is It A dream’ and Vim a&b sides (Thank Heaven/ Is It A Dream.’ I accept that ‘The Price Of Love’ is a different pressing of Vim #515, either original or after the A/B-side scans.
