I've never heard of a copy on Delta. But what do I know LOL

These are the two releases I do know.

Ebony 01 - Arabia / These Three Little Words - 1962 (Backed by the Buddy Kay Band)
Showcase 2501 - Arabia / Those Three Little Words - 1963 (Backed by the Boots Randolph Band) (released as white Demos, and blue, green, and red label issues)

Story goes Fred Foster secured the Ebony master as a lease in from their manager Juanita Henson, and had intended it for his new Showcase label, but an agreement with Henson and Foster meant it ended up being re-recorded at Nashville using established and respected Monument musicians (Bill Justis, Boots Randolph etc). Showcase 'became' Sound Stage 7 as a result of some kind of label registration problem I believe.
