In addition, a group called 'Little Mac and the Boss Sounds' recorded an organ instrumental version of "In The Midnight Hour" (Atlantic 45-2309) in 1965, backed with a vocal version by Ann Mason feat. Little Mac & the Boss Sounds titled "You Can't Love Me (In The Midnight Hour)". Nevertheless it's very probable that this is not by Little Mac Simmons. The record was issued in the UK on Atlantic 584 031 in 1966. A-side has later been reissued on "Where It's At - Soul In The Midnight Hour" (Kent CDKEND 173, 1999 UK), and b-side on "The Girls Got Soul - Atlantic Distaff Soul Classics" (Kent CDKEND 186, 2000 UK).

Little Mack (with Sun Ra Arkestra) on El Saturn is a different artist.
