 I haven’t noticed any comment on the variable, un/hyphenated spelling of the Group’s name. On the UK London singles (here and on the conventional black issue) it’s ‘Dell-Vikings’. On the Old Gold and Lightning re-issues it’s ‘Del Vikings’ and on the USA MCA re-issue, too.

Here a brief biog of the Group is headed ‘Dell-Vikings’, whilst the narrative explains the difference between Dot and Mercury’s naming.

Further confusion http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1eU_lDQaVM when the tune kicks off (album cover).

 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLZP9bWOfAk takes you to Little Billy Boy (which is very good) and the great sight of the London 78 spinning around.

 All early orange London Demos have a blank reverse.

 Some issues had two,separate single sided demos - see HLD 8346 by Pat Boone. Pat was a huge selling artist, and perhaps both sides got airplay.

 My demo of "The Shadow Knows" by The Coasters is the same. I think all London single side demos are the same

 I have an excellent copy of the orange demonstration sample copy as photo 1 above, but the reverse of my copy has a black blank side B label. It does not seem to have peeled off. Can anyone enlighten me?
