CD ERRATA & ADDENDA

The stereo version of "Dancin'" is listed by the label as an alternate 'take' w/o chorus whilst the monaural version is listed as the original RCA Victor single. In fact, it's the other way 'round. The stereo version with chorus is the actual recording released in 1957 as a monaural single. The monaural track included here appears to be an early alternate 'take' where Perry may have done a quick run through of the song without the choral background.  The exclusion of other stereo songs within this Bear Family compilation is unexplained.
