Notes:  The 1952 single of "The Ruby and the Pearl" was released in Japan, the UK and Australia only. The 1955 45 Extended Play compilation release has been documented through the courtesy of J. E. Knox, "The Victor Freak" and SongFiler maven, an Engineer with Multnomah Community Television in Gresham, Oregon. "The forty selections ( 2 each by 20 artists ) contained in this set all appear to have been previously unreleased at the time of issue ( listed January 20, 1955 ). I came across this set while researching Ralph Flanagan and his Orchestra ( two by this band also appear in the set )." ~ J. Knox, May 8, 2002
