Dugaree Doll  Mitch Miller and The Sandpipers  (1955)   “Matt,  I just saw your recent post of Dungaree Doll on Peter Pan Records, and thought that perhaps you might be interested in another version, another record company, another speed. This one’s a 6-inch 78 on yellow plastic.   Your site is simply the best time-killer-when-I’m-supposed-to-be-working that any human being has ever devised. ”    — Glenn
