RCA Victor Label-I Need A Shoulder To Cry On-Billy Bunn and his Buddies-1951
Above: Recorded 12/20/51. This was the first of two records this group had released, both on RCA Victor. Their second record was two songs done earlier by The Ink Spots, "That's When Your Heartaches Begin" and "Until The Real Thing Comes Along". And I believe there was some other guy who later also had "That's When Your Heartaches Begin" released on RCA Victor, complete with "talking" recitation la The Ink Spots!
