Double Listing - Jimmy Dorsey

#2 & #6 should both +be Jimmy Dorsey. Even though the Jitterbuzz version of Your Hit Parade shows Tommy Dorsey, this is an error. I can find no record of Tommy Dorsey recording this. Amazon, Allmusic and several other sites all show Jimmy Dorsey recording the hit version of Maria Elena in 1941.

Given your research we'll make the change, thanks
