The Courtsmen on River 225

The Courtsmen
River 225
CP-3389 ~ Baby I Love You I Do
CP-3390 ~ No One But You
Rite Acct. #240 - Issued 1960
Biloxi, MS

Musically, this is a so-so record with a teen theme like a cross between the Four Lads and the Everly Brothers, but when it comes to obscurity - it's off the charts!

River Records was owned by Marion Carpenter and was fairly prolific with 10 different releases posted on this Rite listing. This one appears to be previously unlisted on any Rite discographies.
