Notes
Take 2, which is issued on Vi 24739, includes laughter and is released with 2 different labels. On one of the labels, a note in red ink states, "Dear Rudy: What do you say we let the public have this one? The 'slip-up' makes the record funnier. E. Wallerstein. OK R. Vallée."
Victor ledgers: "E. Oberstein, present."
Audition of both takes reveals that members of the band contribute vocals.
