There are three different pressings of Titan FF-1701:
1. red label without text 'The Original', the company address in an arc around the bottom
2. red label with text 'The Original', the company address written horizontally on the right side of center hole
3. yellow label with text 'Distributed by Dot Records Inc.' on the left side of center hole, the company address in an arc around the bottom, 'The Original' is written horizontally on both sides of center hole.

Trans American TR-PW-519 was issued both as by 'Joel Hill' and 'Joel Hill with The Strangers'. The Trans American company used the same address as Titan Records and Monogram Records: Hollywood 28, California.

In addition, there's an obscure single "Tell Me (You're Coming Back)" / "Easy Livin'" by The Strangers, issued on Linda #118 in 1965. The Linda Records was located in Hollywood, California. The a-side is a cover of The Rolling Stones song (written by Jagger-Richards), and the record is produced by Stewart-Turvey. Although the lead singer (as well as the lead guitarist on b-side's instrumental) sounds quite similar to Joel Scott Hill, his identity has not been established with certainty (on the contrary, for instance according to Goldmine Price Guide To 45rpm Records, The Strangers on Linda Records is actually the same as on Warner Bros.). During this time, Joel's group was usually known as The Joel Scott Hill Trio but for a short period from late 1964 to early 1965 they apparently worked as The Strangers as well. "Easy Livin'" has been reissued on CD "Rare Instrumental, Vol. 4" (Canadian CAN-2304, 2005 CAN).

In addition, Joel Scott Hill appeared in the early 1960s as a session guitarist on several recordings by Kathy Young & The Innocents ("A Thousand Stars"/Indigo 108, 1960, "Happy Birthday Blues"/Indigo 115, 1961 etc.) and Chris Montez ("Let's Dance"/Monogram 505, 1962 etc.).

In the 1970s The Flying Burrito Brothers had a side-lineup called Sierra that recorded one LP ("Sierra", Mercury SRMI 1179) in 1977. Evidently Hill doesn't appear on the album.
