No Doc one example is Charlie Drakes "My Boomerang Won't Come Back" "Black In The Face" that was mistakenly released on this LP. The song was redone immediately after it's release in 61 because of "I've waved the thing all over the place/practiced til I was black
in the face/I'm the big disgrace of the Aborigine race/My boomerang won't come back!" After the BBC refused to play the tune, a new version was recorded, substituting "blue
in the face"
The 2 Coasters tracks were also never released as they were on this LP as these were recorded in 76 without permission by the 2 original members that were not part of these recordings who actually had the K-tel Album pulled.
And an Alternate take (Not a remake) of Jumpin' Gene Simmons Haunted House was used by mistake by K-tel on this LP. A spliced version can be head on The Anthology Haunted House: The Complete Jumpin' Gene Simmons . Gene began his recording career with Sun Records in 1958.
