Yes, he apparently did misidentify the two, switching them around consistently, twice saying Merle for Teri, and once saying Teri for Merle when she was curled up on a chair. IIRC. The Choirgirl is prominently featured during that song that Beth Howland does so wonderfully, and he said she was Merle. It was a long time ago... He hasn't identified this fellow: I post-recording made a guess of who he was based on the presence of someone else but Tom said I was wrong. Any ideas? This is from Elaine's song with several guys advising Bobby (Dean Jones) about relationships ("Little Things You Do Together" I think).
