    Biography :

    The original version of "Love In Return" was in September 1961 by The Dell- Coeds on Enith International Records.


    It was produced by Steve Venet, brother of Nik Venet, who produced the Beach Boys at Capitol. The Dell- Coeds recorded at Gold Star Studios, where Phil Spector recorded many of his hits. The record was then re-released nationally by Dot Records in January 1962.

    The Dell-Coeds with Disc Jockeys ( Gary Dawson, Marc Nelsen and Ken Parker )

    A cover record of "Love In Return" by the Nightingales (using the Dell-Coeds vocal arrangement) was released in February 1962. Jimmy Bowen produced a new arrangement of "Love In Return" with Christy Cummins, in April 1962.
    She was then a student at Fairfax High School in Los Angeles.


    Because of some payola issues, the top 40 station in Los Angeles (KFWB) would not play the Dell-Coeds version of the song. However, their San Francisco counterpart (KEWB) gave it heavy airplay and sponsored our concert at the Cow Palace.
    KDAY in Los Angeles featured the Christy Cummins version of "Love In Return".
