45-15412   I HEAR YOU KNOCKING/NEVER LEAVE ME 

 

45-15436   MEMORIES ARE MADE OF THIS/TEENAGE PRAYER


("Memories Are Made of This" was a number one single for Gale on January 14, 1956 in the Cashbox charts.  On that same date "I Hear You Knocking" featured at number four and "Teenage Prayer" was at number eight giving Gale three top ten hits in the same chart.)  

45-15448   WHY DO FOOLS FALL IN LOVE/I WALK ALONE


(The many faces of "Ivory Tower" showing three original Dot labels and two reissue Dot labels)

45-15458   IVORY TOWER/I AIN'T GONNA WORRY

45-15515   MY HEART BELONGS TO YOU/ORANGE BLOSSOMS

 

(one-sided demos from the UK.  For some reason Billy Vaughn's name is crossed out on the Lucky Lips demo and Tommy Steele is written in, but it's the same version as released in the US.) It's curious that two different one-sided demos were done for this release.

Sheet Music

 

Unfortunately, the publishers who did sheet music for Gale's songs, used the same pictures on most covers:

 

    

 

     

 

    

 

    

   

      

                                                                                             (A Japanese songbook with Gale on the cover)

Gale's vocal arrangement for Love by the Jukebox Light.  Gale changed the words...and they are much better for it!
