      • The Fleetwood's "Come Softly To Me" is a disaster. There is this very loud bongo playing that is practically drowning out the lead vocalist. Then, during the middle of the song, two male backing vocals come from nowhere (and are not featured on the record). These voices drown out the lead vocalist and make the two female vocalists' voices barely audible. Also the lead vocalist is clearly very tense and nervous. At the conclusion of the song Ed has to practically hold on to two of them (as the third singer just ran off) so they could take a bow!

      • On Billy Williams Quartet - "Goodnight Irene," Billy is singing live to a prerecorded backing track. This includes a female backing vocal which is lip synched by the three guys behind Billy!
        Billy changes a line from the record:
        On the record, he sings, "Sometimes I live in the country, sometimes I live downtown"
        But on Sullivan, he sings, "Sometimes I live in the country, sometimes I stay downtown.
