Notes:
Number 34, "Young Love" is a new (and now rarely heard) version, on the Groove label, of Sonny James' original 1957 hit. This version opens with a new intro: Female Voices sing "Do you remember?" . . . Sonny James: "Yes, I remember" . . . Both sing: "The song that made us fall in love" . . . (Song begins).
