Unreleased Mary Jane Jerry Capehart Unreleased 
Musicians - Jerry Capehart: vocal - Eddie Cochran: lead guitar - Joe Maphis: second lead guitar - Ernie Freeman: piano.
Joe Maphis joins Eddie Cochran as second lead guitar on 'Rockin' & Flyin' from take 5. 'Fast Jivin' is an instrumental backing track of 'Rockin' & 'Flyin' and released under the name of Ernie Freeman. The song 'Mary Jane' will most probably stay unreleased "as the band sounds disjointed and confused with the changes in tempo from latino to uptempo country." (from: 'Don't Forget Me' by Julie Mundy and Darrel Higham).
For a short biography of Jerry Capehart, Ernie Freeman and Joe Maphis go to the Eddie Cochran Connection pages.

musicians - Don Deal: vocal/guitar; Eddie Cochran: (lead) guitar; Hank Cochran: guitar/vocal harmony; steel guitar/violin/piano/stand-up bass unknown.
           
  It is uncertain if Eddie Cochran is present on these Don Deal sides. This is what Paul Vidal says about it: "Contrary to belief, though, it is not Eddie Cochran who plays lead guitar on these sides but Joe Maphis, probably with Ralph Mooney on steel. However, it is Hank Cochran who supplies the harmony vocal to 'Cryin' In One Eye.'" On the contrary Don Deal has stated many times that the Cochran Brothers are on these sides. The biographies of Julie Mundy/Darrel Higham and Bob Cochran lists these songs with Eddie Cochran on guitar so therefore they are included in these sessions pages. These tracks were made available on RSR-LP 1019 'Thinkin' About You'.
