    Happy together by the pageants on goldisc 3013 was not Johnny Aladdin he recorded it on chip records .the pageants on godisc was a group from New york and was recorded by Jim Gribble .I know because i was one of the group

    • Thank you for straightening out these listings. I’d like to know if the version playing by youtube sources is the Pageants version or the one by Johnny Aladdin? Would you take a listen and comment back to me? Also, was there any involvement in your group by the 1962 Pageants with Tony Dee?

      Your comments are appreciated. Members of groups are often the only source to correct wrong information that has been around for years.
