Note: There is also a single by Gene Church issued approximately in the early 1960's on a New York label Safari Records (#1085), including songs "Missing You" and "Underneath The Table". Neverthless, it probably doesn't have any connection to Eugene Church.

In addition, Eugene Church may appear also on other recordings by The Saxons a.k.a. The Hollywood Saxons/The Capris/The Portraits/The Tuxedos:
OUR (no number) - THE SAXONS : Home On The Range / Please Be My Love Tonight  (1958)
TAMPA 139 - THE SAXONS : Tryin' / My Love Is True  (1958)
TENDER 518 - THE CAPRIS : Endless Love / (reverse by another artist)  (1959)
CAPITOL 4181 - THE PORTRAITS : Close To You / Easy Cash  (1959)
FORTE 1414 - THE TUXEDOS : Yes It's True / Trouble Trouble  (1960)
