Subject: "Mope-Itty Mope" by The Boss-Tones

Once again, I just read on yet another oldies website that Len Barry (of the Dovells) was an "anonymous lead vocalist" on "Mope-Itty Mope". I have been hearing and reading this false info for a few years now, and I'd like to finally set the record straight here. Len Barry was not involved with The Boss-Tones at all, and he did not sing on that record. Len Barry's original group was The Brooktones, which later evolved into The Deauvilles simplier spelled Dovells. The Dovells later recorded their own version of "Mope-Itty Mope", which is probably the reason for the confusion regarding the Boss-Tones record. The only group The Boss-Tones had any association with was The Ly-Dells. The source of my info is two members of the actual Boss-Tones. I'd just like to see the record set straight.
