I think a few of the CD tracks were not released on the LPs. (eg. Momunent 45-450V.) Alas, no back-up credit on that center label either.
Coltman isn't much help with: "The follow-up single was weak: his cover of "Yellow Bird," the Belafonte-bred pop dilution of one of Haiti's greatest songs, "Choucoune," backed with "Kilgary Mountain," originally popularized in America by Burl Ives but in latter days associated with the Clancy Brothers. (p.179)
FYI: Belafonte's cover was actually 'Don't Ever Love Me' as bred and pop-diluted (or adapted) by Irving Burgie.
