 The Bernie Nee and Carol Hughes versions also got a British release, on Philips and Columbia respectively. All those competing versions must have killed each other off nicely.

 "I Don't Hurt Anymore" is timely for the Eddie Fisher release of the song in the UK, in May 1958. Note that both songs are thru Aberbach Ltd. Publishing in the UK.

 It appears to be a true "cover" record ("Lend Me Your Comb"), as the original version by Carl Perkins also appeared to be available in the UK about that time (on LONDON) in April, 1958. His original release of the song was in December, 1957 on SUN Records in the US, and was immediately covered by Bernie Nee (aka The Five Blobs) on COLUMBIA, and Carol Hughes on ROULETTE, both of those also showing a December, 1957 release here on this site.

 The sheet music offers some clues. Some kind of tie-in with 6.5 Special perhaps?

A sound sample is also available. "R&B vocal" - hah!

 Hard to pin down when they're covering other people's hit songs. Probably no connection but there was a group of the same name covering a couple of Four Seasons songs on the U.K. budget label Cannon a few years later.

 Well it was released in April 1958 but that's the full extent of my Hi-Spots knowledge.
