Above: Label images for Coral 60046 A and Capitol 2654 recorded on March 7, 1949 and May 31, 1951 respectively. Lead singer on both of these is Gene Alford. William "Pat" Best, of Four Tunes fame, wrote the former selection (with no help from Mr. Berman). The flip side of the latter selection is "Oh Baby Mine (I Get So Lonely)", which was The Four Knights' biggest hit.
