Compiler's Notes and Additions

The stereo album of "Runaway With Del Shannon" contains two alternate takes to that of the mono version. They are "The Search" and "Runaway."

The stereo album of "Little Town Flirt" was pressed as both a two-sided stereo LP, and (in error) a one-sided stereo/one-sided mono LP. This album also contains the track "Hey! Little Girl" without vocal harmonies, as opposed to the single version.

The stereo album of "One Thousand Six Hundred Sixty One Seconds With Del Shannon" contains an alternate take of "Do You Wanna Dance" to that of the mono LP. In addition, the stereo version of "Keep Searchin'" lacks the added echo and compression to that of the mono mix-down.

The majority of the Liberty singles are different mixes to those found on the Liberty LP's

In England, the BerLee single "Sue's Gotta Be Mine" b/w "Now She's Gone" was released on London as "Sue's Gonna Be Mine" b/w "Since She's Gone."

The original single of "Runaway" was erroniously pressed in small amounts with organist Maximilian's (Max Crook) instrumental "The Snake" in place of "Jody" on the B-side. This error is known to exist on U.S. Big Top #45-3067, England's London HLX-9317, Belgium's London 9.5.241, and the French EP, London 10.095.
