ROY HALL on CITATION (1951) Revisted

Way back in 2010 I posted details of the three releases that Roy Hall had under the name of The Eagles on the CITATION label. Then I had only ever seen the first two of the three, I finally managed to track down a copy of that elusive third disc.






CITATION 1152 was reviewed in BILLBOARD on 27th October 1951, alas the reviewer was not very impressed. 

"You're Gonna Be Sorry" 
Good grade novelty ballad gets a rough-hewn rhythm rendition from a quavery voiced nasal warbler and inept small combo

"You're Still The Captain Of My Heart"
Warbler and gal duo wail through a likely waltz throbber. Like flip, material is strong, performance weak.
