Hello Kristjan,

I compared 'Until....' with 'Please Don't Mention It' and I was going to
agree that both were vocal Billy Merrin,
but in the Rust/Forbes supplement there's a note saying vocal Eric Stanley
for 'Until.... '

And in TMR 102, a note from Mike Thomas gives the source for that
information as Melody Maker magazine 30 Jan 1937.

There's no vocalist mentioned on "Until The Real Thing Comes Along" by 
Billy Merrin & His Commanders on Crown 274 (November 1936), and Rust/ 
Forbes don't have a name either. But isn't it Billy himself? Doesn't 
sound like Ken Crossley, who isn't mentioned as vocalist after July 1936 
John? You know this by heart, I guess...
