Cash Box - January 05, 1957

Gayles swings out on this middle beat jump with a powerful reading. The tune is alive and Gayles delivers it with enthusiasm and zest. A gusty performance that makes it a side to keep close tabs on. On the flip, Billy chants a hard hitting quick beat with an excellent manner of delivery. Gayles will hit it big one of these days. Material however is not of the category that will make it this one. However, better than average deck.
