Indexer Notes

In this story "The Archies" are still a trio of Archie, Reggie, and Jughead, even though in ads for the cartoon and record album elsewhere in the issue Betty and Veronica are depicted as members. Also, in this story Reggie is the drummer and Jughead plays organ, while typically Reggie played guitar and Jughead the drums.
