MISC NOTES: The Cash Box Record Review (July 15, 1961):

BRADY & GRADY SNEAD 
(Dolton 43) 

(B-b) “BLUE BIRD” (2:01) [Aldon 
BMI — Mann, Kaplan] The ear- 
pleasing songsters offer an enticing 
sentimental opus that moves along at 
a quick beat clip. It’s a goodie that 
can fly high on the hit lists. 

(B-b) “THE SADDEST GIRL IN 
TOWN” (2:36) [Cornerstone, 
Briarcliff BMI — Coleman] This end is 
a poignant, slightly up beat pretty 
that is also treated to an ultra-smooth 
performance. Fetching guitar back- 
drop on both halves.
