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 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.
