    • The addition of writing credits to the post confirms that the Aladdin group belongs together. Listening again to the group makes me believe there is not a variation of members between releases, with Eddie Lewis being the narrator and possibly the lead on ‘Little Girl I Love You So.’

      Thanks for your comment. Any information you have on a variation of members would be appreciated.
