Session Details: 

The vocal group is called "The Double Six of Paris", but Bruyninckx lists 7 vocalists. The wikipedia entry for the issue, however, omits Claudine Barge. According to Bruyninckx, the vocalists were dubbed over the original tunes at a later date. -JS

Also, some discographies incorrectly list the date as September 20, 1963. Also, conflicting reports between Payne's, Fitzgerald's and Bruyninckx' work, some say Moody played on both tracks, some that he was on tenor, some on alto, and Fitzgerald says he only played on the 2nd track. -JS
