Note: Larry Dale on Elbridge Records (Larry Dale and the King Notes: "Crying Over You" / "Memories", Elbridge 12762, released in the early 1960's) is very likely a different artist, possibly originating from the Illinois area. There is also a country'n'western singer of the same name, who recorded for Gary, Indiana label Sunny Records in the late 1960's ("Walkin' The Floor Over You" / "Detour", Sunny S-519). Another Larry Dale appears as a featured vocalist on a few 1959-60 recordings by Rudy Thacker and the Stringbusters ("Mountain Guitar" / "I Was A Fool", Blue Hen BH-234, 1959 and "Black Train" / "The Dream", Lucky 0012, 1960). The blues singer-guitarist Larry Dale supposedly has no connection with the Larry Dale Group on Chicago-based Crystal Records ("Beautiful Dreamer" / "Night Train", Crystal 107, 1958) either.
