RCA's listing notice for this release6 has Gladys Music, Inc., / INTERSONG-U.S.A., INC. / ASCAP as the publisher for FOOL; however, a hand written correction made modifications to appear as Gladys Music, Inc. / INTERSONG-U.S.A., INC., ASCAP CHAPPELL & Co., Inc. / A.M.R.A. thus making this label the corrected label. Of the labels for this release, this is the most difficult to find.
