    Because there was a pop group at mercury also called the Gaylords, Savoy changed this group's name to the Imperials and released " My Darling" b/w "You Should Have Told Me". The same Imperials, in July 1954, had a release on Derby (# 858): "Why Did You Leave Me" b/w "Hard Workin' Woman". Louis Van Dyke was part of the Ambassadors  that recorded for Timely in Sept '53, maybe the imperials became the Ambassadors…???

    "Get Mad Baby" is actually "Get Mad, Baby" and "Go On Baby" is "Go On, Baby".

    Gaylords - Get Mad, Baby (Savoy 852) 1952


    "Darling I'm Sorry" by The Ambassadors is actually "Darling, I'm Sorry (I Made You Cry)".
