Hi Neal. I hope you have time for this. I am a long time fan and record collector, semi-retired school teacher, and did I mention, record collector? My name is Karl Elder and I live in Norfolk, Virginia.

Last year I ran across a fabulous Decca EP of Carl Dobkins, Jr. which I can find
absolutely no information about. It's Decca catalog number is 38082 with matrix s 4234 and s 4235. Side 1: (1) Lucy Devil (2) (There's A Little Song A-Singing) In My
Heart. Side 2: (1) My Pledge To You (2) Three Little Peggies

I assume it was recorded in 1960-'61, but as I mentioned, I can find no
information on it. I purchased it at a yard sale which contained many DJ
copies, but this is in no way that I can see a promotional or DJ copy. I can
not find it listed on any of the usual catalogs, or internet sites, including
Carl's own! So, what's up? If this a counterfeit (doesn't appear to be-and I
can not imagine why anyone would counterfeit this particular record) I would
imagine Carl would personally want this record added to any discography,
everywhere possible, not to mention receive any royalties, recognition or
whatever that he justly deserves! If I have a copy, certainly someone else has
a copy, and he should be getting his props for it!
Thanks so much. Karl Elder

pop-teen ep, in new condition it might bring 5 bucks if you can find the right person, if it's used 50 cents to one dollar

It looks like your EP was in a special series ... like this one that came out a little later.

The only Dobkins EP on Popsike is Decca 2664 and the last copy was graded VG++/NM and sold for $75 in 2012.

Otherwise, that catalog number does not pop up on Google associated with Dobkins except for another person looking for info:
