Errors with the credits on Magic Carpet LP 1005:

– ‘Save A Dream’ is an unreleased side by the Mystics (Brooklyn).

– ‘The Party Starts At Nine,’ originally released in 1963 on Red Bird 10-033, is by the Trade Winds.

– ‘Hold Me Tight’ was credited in 1964 to the Treasures (ft Pete Anders) on Shirley 500.

– We Belong Together (A6 (2:10) and It’s All Over A7 (2:05)) is like by the Chimes.  To further the error, the Collectibles CD (The Chimes Meet The Videls) also credits The Videls (#17 (2:20) and #16 (2.39) with the time difference suggesting a different version than Musicnote or Magic Carpet.)

– See following entry: Videls likely CHIMES for more details about A6 and A7.


Videls (RI) likely CHIMES – We Belong Together (2:10)/ It’s All Over (2:05), ’63 (Musicnote 117) (Although label credits ‘Videls’ sources say the group is the Chimes.  The Videls say it is not them.  



Videls (Black Group-Cincinnati OH) – I Wish/ Blow Winds Blow, ’60 (Early 702 & Dusty Disc 473, ‘64)



Vi Dels (White Vocal Group-Upstate New York) – Walking Down The Street/ Ya, Ya, Ya, Ya, ’64 (Fargo 1062) (See comment for b-side scan link.)
