Judy & Joyce were Judy and Joyce Harris. Judy Harris (apparently the same person) also recorded one single for Shelby Singleton in 1970: "Glory Train" / "You Touched Me" (Sun SUN-1117; 1975 reissue Sun SI-1117). The b-side has been reissued on compilations "Northern Soul's Guilty Secrets" (Kent CDKEND 349, 2011 UK) and "Northern Soul Collector 2" (Outta Sight OSCD033, 2012 UK/Magnum Cat MC-0062, 2012 JPN).

In addition, Joyce Harris co-wrote with Joe Allison "For The Life Of Me" which was recorded by Jody Miller in 1968 (LP 'The Nashville Sound Of Jody Miller', Capitol ST-2996, 11/1968, produced by Joe Allison). BMI also lists the following titles as written by Joyce Harris: "Don't Put Off Till Tomorrow" and "The Frog" (recording details unknown).

According to www.colorradio.com, the 1966 recording by Joyce Harris and The Chavelles on Stewart records ("Hey Sweet Daddy" / "In Love Always", Stewart 620"O"-4205; distributed by Orchid Records) is different Joyce Harris.
