Does anyone know which version of Over The Rainbow was released first ,The Baysiders or The Demensions
Over The Rainbow -The Baysiders -Everest 19366---year 1960
Over The Rainbow -The Demensions-Mohawk 116---Year 1960
Both versions sound extremely similar vocally with just a slight variation in the orchestration ……...Geoff
