First of all "Mouse Tracks: The Story of Walt Disney Records" has a few errors in the life of Gloria Wood. Gloria died March 23, 1995 of complications of Diabetes, not 1998 as the book stated. She DID NOT SING IN DON JUANS group...that was her sister Donna Wood ...The group is called Donna and her Don Juans, and included George Jackson, Frankie Carle and others, but NOT ART CARNEY, who was an announcer and warm up guy for Horace Heidt before the shows, but never sang with Donna, nor knew Gloria Wood well! Gloria didn't get started until at least early 1947 when her sister Donna Wood became ill and died mid 1947. Otherwise the book is okay. Also, when she sang for the movie Mame, she didn't sing for Lucille Ball, she sang for the little boy who was Lucy's son in movie who could not sing a note so Gloria Wood sang for the kid in a little boy's voice.
