Additional notes:

The Peermonts (possible featuring pianist & Murco recording artist Reuben Bell) that worked with Gene Wyatt c. 1962 (see the White Label LP track listings below) had also two Murco 45's of their own:
"Makin' Out - Part 1" / "Makin' Out - Part 2" (Murco 1030, 1966)
"After The Sun Goes Down" / "You Gotta Love Me Too" (Murco 1039, 1968)

The Murco Records of Shreveport, LA, owned by Dick Martin, Harding Guyon & Dee Marais, ran in two parts: 1959-1962 and 1966-1969. The label had a subsidiary Peermont Records and it was distributed by Jewel Records. Wyatt's sole Murco release was also issued on Dollie Records in Nashville, TN in 1966. Some sources list the b-side of Murco 1029 titled as "Searchin' For Someone Who Cares".
