    Little Girl/ When (Lost-Nite 148)
    Released in 1964.
    This Lost Nite 45 was released for the sole purpose of making people believe it was the white NYC Capris,but it is a black Philly group.

    A Hum Diddly [sic] Dee Do, ’82 –> A Hum Diddily Dee Do

    • The date on ‘My Weakness/ Yes, My Baby Please’ was corrected to 1958. Thanks for sending the article. Another good read.

      The confirming scan link puts the spelling of ‘A Hum Diddily Dee Do’ at rest. Thanks for finding this elusive scan.
