    Apparently a Decca secretary left the "E" out of a contract, and Buddy never corrected it.

    Liza Minnelli's last name is very often spelt 'Minelli', e. g. at the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert. Oh well, Freddie is sometimes spelt 'Freddy'...

    The 1988 Polydor CD issue of War Heroes is credited to "JIMMI HENDRIX" on the spine.

    In 1967 UA released the LP "Solid Goldsboro". My original copy from back then listed on the cover
    "Whenever He Holds You" as "Whenever He Holds Me". Pretty much changes everything
    about the song "not that there's anything wrong with that". (It took them years to correct their mistake).

    On his album 'Career Moves', Loudon Wainwright has a song called 'T.S.M.N.W.A.' (They Spelled My Name Wrong Again).
    Conspiration theory: Louden Wainwright and Freddy Mercury were born the same day, Sept. 5, 1946.

    The (1963) second issue of "The Marvelettes Sing" LP on Tamla (originally titled "Smash Hits 0f '62") had their name spelled as "Marveletts" on the front cover

  16. Beatles is spelled Beetles...

    You'd think someone would have fixed that along the way... ;)

    I've seen the "Minelli" misspelling in other places.

    Given the "And His Orchestra" credit on the label shown in that clip, I ask: Where's the "Vocal by Bobby Bare" credit?

    There was a Carlo Santanna. He was a guitarist for Paper Lace (of original "Billy, Don't Be A Hero" and "The Night Chicago Died" fame). Thus one has to wonder whom Ms. Hill meant to thank - him, or . . .

    I suppose we should be thankful that US MGM (which by then had their gold-and-cyan "yin-yang" labels, the 45 designed differently from the LP) didn't release this.
