Hi all. I can't add much. Session information on those Monument recordings has never yet been accessible to my knowledge.

The one thing that is known is that the famous Jordanaires did the vocal backup. The instrumentation, however, is uncredited. I assume that somewhere in the Monument files, if they still exist, there must be information about the personnel on the masters; but I don't know that for a fact. As things stand now, the identities of the session musicians are a mystery.

Let's hope someday the full Monument session information can be made available. It sure would help for questions like these.

Phil, I'm not clear on how the bit you quoted applies. It's true that that single is the same story, no session information. Not sure, though, what relationship "Don't Ever Love Me" has to "Yellow Bird." Are you saying Belafonte didn't perform "Yellow Bird?" I'm away from my sources right now, but I'm pretty sure he did.

Best wishes to all, Bob
