This is probably a 1942 Columbia Records re-pressing or unreleased recording, since The Snowflakes were with Claude Thornhill at that time.
The Snowflakes were named after band leader, Claude Thornhill’s, theme song called, “SNOWFALL”.

Group members included, Buddy Stewart, Martha Wayne, Terry Allen, & Lillian Lane. Later, both Buddy Stewart & Lillian Lane were in The G-Noters , a group which were being featured in Gene Krupa’s Orchestra in 1944 – 1945 . Claude Thornhill enlisted in the Navy in October of 1942. He served his country for three years and after his discharge in late 1945, he began re-organizing another orchestra. By 1946, his new band was under way, using many of his original band members.
