Misc Notes:
The Miniature Men was a  group of professional recording session musicians - quite possibly the bunch otherwise famously known as the "Wrecking Crew" - led  by arranger Hank Levine for their Dolton Records sessions. Some promotional and retail copies of their #57  Dolton single miss-credited them as the "Minature Men."
