 "Dearest" is the only correct title of the song, whose original version was released in 1957 by Mickey & Sylvia. It's just such an obscure song that nobody could identify it in pre-Google 1963. It was only known that it was not an original song by Holly - therefore the initial release credited it as "Umm Oh Yeah" and the composer as unknown. Later releases corrected this.

 The song Umm, Oh Yeah is nowadays given the alternative title Dearest on compilations. "Dearest" is, of course, the first word of the lyric. Since this is one of the NYC demos (later overdubbed by The Fireballs under the supervision of Norman Petty), it's hard to see why the composer credit is not known. The track also appears on the EP "Buddy - By Request", where the credit goes to "Gibson, Baker".

 'What To Do' is a different recording to the 1961 release.
