- "Before We Part and Go" / "If You're Gonna Shake It" (1960)
- "Destiny, I Love You" / "Run, Run, Run" (1961)
Given the Danville connection, it is likely that A. Miller is Arlie Miller who recorded his own single in Danville around the same time and like Carter had been a member of the Varieteers. Miller's single "Lou Ann" / "You're The Sweetest Girl" was released on the Lucky label. Jim Foley, another member of The Varieteers, also released a single on Lucky in 1960.
Arlie Miller would go on to open the Midnite Sound Studio in Danville and start Milky Way Records with Arlie Neaville (aka Dean Carter) a few years later. As for H. Sherman and Johnny Lawrence, it is unknown if they were from Bloomington, Danville or somewhere else entirely.
For the next decade or so, Bob Carter's musical activities are also uncertain. In 1973 however, he moved to Nashville and recorded a demo that eventually landed him a deal with Oweman Records. It is not clear whether he ever released anything for the label. He did however have one single released on the Royal American label: "As The Fire Grows" b/w "Soakin' Up Suds."
