1.) BOBBY & THE INKEEPERS
In 2010 Seattle's Light In the Attic Records released a boxed set of ten reproduction 45s under the name Wheedle's Groove. Unfortunately at least one of the reproductions has been offered for sale on-line as an original 1ST ISSUE.
The STRINGFELLOW Treesong disc was part of the Wheedle's Groove set. To the naked eye the repro looks exactly like the original. However, the dead (runout) wax information is different. Please see below.
Note that it appears the reproduction considers "Grooving Is Easy" to have been/be the A side of the disc.
