The Southernaires on Tarheel

The Southernaires

CP-6541 - Sweetie Pie
CP-6542 - Teen-Age Plea

Tarheel Records

According to the copyright book, both songs were written by Carl Tyndall and arranged by Dorothy Tyndall.  The Tyndalls later operated the Twilight label located in Falls Church, Virginia (Twilight Records discography can be found here).
Tarheel suggests a North Carolina location, or perhaps Carl Tyndall came from North Carolina.

Acoustic folk from Chapel Hill, North Carolina produced by Chris Munger
A folk singing UNC student has turned producer and cut a 12 - inch LP album titled "Devil's Child," recorded on the Inner Records label. Dave Jones, who spent last summer touring the United States and Canada singing and lecturing at many mid-western universities and nightclubs, wrote all 16 songs on the album. Accompanying himself on the 12 - string, Jones displays a great variety of styles from stomping, driving bottleneck blues to intricate finger picking instrumentals and deep moving ballads. During his summer tour he played to, among others, Lynda Baines Johnson (1), as well as numerous college audiences.
