Notes: ~ The Hudson-DeLange Band was formed in 1936 but never recorded the song "Moonglow" by composers Will Hudson and Eddie DeLange but in 1956 the song was featured in the film "Picnic" in counterpoint with "Theme from Picnic" and best-selling records of the coupling were made by Morris Stoloff and his Orchestra for Decca and by George Cates and his Orchestra for Coral. The McGuire Sisters had a popular vocal version of the "Picnic" song on Cadence Records.
