Some sources reference Al Downing to the a-side.  No scan for b-side on Kansoma.

The timing/writing credits for ‘The Dribble (Twist)’ credited as The Magnificents on Checker 1016 is the same as ’The Dribble (Twist) credited as The Raging Storms on Trans Atlas 677.  I’ve heard clips of the Magnificents version and it is the same as the Raging Storms version.
