Petites Group(s)

Petites (Origin-Iowa) (According to all biographies, the group recorded 8 songs with all listing the following 8 records (or 16 songs) belonging to this group of Petites.  The Elmor and Cub sound like girl groups.  The Ascot release is more their style.  I did not hear the Troy sides.  Can anyone confirm if they recorded 8 songs or cut 8 records?)
