A note at the end of raremusicalgems.blogspot.be (which has group photos and history) says:

  • “Around the same time, on the opposite coast, there was another group using the name “The Contessas” recording on Witch Records. Some of their songs are floating around on the net as well, but they are a different group entirely. They were more of an R&B/Doo Wop outfit.”
