– I’ve Settled Down/ Hide And Go Seek, ’63 (Cortland 116)


Delighters (Donald & The) credited in error as Donald & The Daylighters – Elephant Walk, ’65 (Astra 1050)

Many references appear for Donald & The Daylighters.  A scan as ‘Elephant Walk (2:41)’ (Astra 1050) is available at with a note the title was originally issued on Cortland (2.41).  The Astra flip is a reissue of  ‘Oh What A Way To Be Loved’ by The Daylighters on Dot/ Tip Top.  It appears that a label /printing error has occurred by crediting Donald & The Daylighters.)
