Yes, it did, although the listings have been updated since publication
the different takes are shown, just not on which issues!

Glad I did because it turns out it's by Bennie Nawahi's Hawaiian's (using the pseudonym "King's Hawaiians"). The song titles looked familiar so I looked it up in Rockwell to confirm it. I have an E copy on Montgomery Ward already but I only have 3 other Timely Tunes, purchased in UnTimely gaps in the calendar (I think I find one every five years or so), so I'm glad to win it. Now, we'll see if it is indeed VG as described.
