  1. one aggregation of upfrons are recorded the first version of”those oldies but goodies”.it’s another aggregation who’s recorded the final and issued version.

    • I’m unsure if the song title you mention ‘those oldies but goodies’ was also done by an ‘Upfronts” group.

      My post, ‘Romans Groups’, includes the above title and various Del-Fi releases. Some clarification has been made to the post. Their association to the ‘Upfronts’ is also included.

      Any clarification would be helpful.

      Thank you.
