Above: Label image of RCA Victor 20-5031 recorded in October 1952 and released the following month. The flip side, "Walking By The River," was a big hit by vocalist/pianist/composer Una Mae Carlisle in the early 1940's. This was the final record where The Striders backed Savannah Churchill. The Striders had moved on to the Derby label and Savannah began recording for Decca. During her career, Savannah had releases on four of the five major record labels of that time.... Capitol, Columbia, RCA Victor, and Decca.... a major accomplishment indeed!
