"For what it is worth, the band that did the “I Can’t Hear You” and “Do It” cuts (music, claps, background vocals) that were released by Downey was: 

Pete Parker - keyboards
Ken Johnston - guitar
Dennis Trull - bass
Skip Metheny – drums 

Those two tunes were recorded in Los Angeles in ’66.  Pat was so young and so full of life and energy then – she was just great.  Thanks for bringing up the memories.I have no idea who the members were that did the other tunes listed. 

Thanks for all your effort to keep this music alive –

Skip Metheny"

"I just wanted to add to Skip's entry. The same group also recorded

"Together Forever" and "They are The Lonely". I still have my copy.

I was very excited to hear that these songs and all of the information

about Pat are available on the internet.

Thanks for your efforts,

Dennis Trull"
