Travelers (MGM-NY) – Rock Me Baby/ Girl In The Bikini, ’59 (MGM 928)

(No scans or info found for the MGM #928 release asby the Travelers.  I have not heard either side.)

There are scans for (The Girl In The Bikini (1:50)/ Rock Me Baby (1:58)) credited as the Splashers on Kayo 928 in 1958. 

The book listed Kayo 928 asby the Debutants (Memories/Going Steady.  No scans were found.  The female group appears on Poplar CDs.) 

The mislistings make it appear to be a book mixup between groups and labels.
