Trying to knock out my remaining open submissions and need help with this one. I found a cover of Samba de Verão by Billy May on one of the Ultra Lounge compilations. According to the liner notes, which are listed on Discogs, it was taken from a Capitol Records single around 1966, but I can't find any further details. Can anyone provide additional assistance?

NO SUCH LUCK! Those Rhino Lounge cd's are great but frustrating when it comes to research!

the link is to Capitol Records and use CONTROL F to search the list instead of manually scrolling.

Only 2 results for Billy May.

Thanks for your assistance. Given that nobody has managed to dig up a release in three years despite May being fairly well known, I'm tempted to just add it to the CD and leave a note about the inability to find a release.
