    • Thanks for commenting on ‘(This Is My) Love Song’ by Jesse Belvin.

      There is conflicting information about the BB. Both Marv Goldberg and Electric Earl claim different things. My posts on the ‘Feathers’ and ‘Jesse Belvin’ have been clarified to reflect the differences.

      Additional authorities are needed to confirm the group in question.
