    Dionne Drifters backgrounds?

    Hi friends - anyone know for sure what songs Dionne, her sister and cousin may have sang on - other than "Mexican Divorce" with the Drifters?

    The notes in the Drifters' ROCKIN' & DRIFTIN' boxed set also lists Dionne and family singing on LONELINESS OR HAPPINESS, LET THE MUSIC PLAY, ON BROADWAY, IN THE LAND OF MAKE BELIEVE, ONE WAY LOVE, and VAYA CON DIOS.

    With the Bacharach connection going on and since Burt featured Cissy Houston on his own albums on songs like "One Less Bell" you would think that he could have perhaps used some of the same background singers that Dionne used. Check out Burt's version of "Mexican Divorce" and "All Kinds of People" also. I've been curious about who sang on his albums for years. Back ground singers seem to get left out as far as getting credit. I wonder why?
