"This Is The End Of A Dream"
Above: Newspaper clipping from August 16, 1947: DETROIT—THE BASIN STREET BOYS with the assistance of pretty doctor's assistant, Ophelia Brandfor, ganged up on Ormonde Wilson of the popular Exclusive recording quartette to see what makes him tick. Especially since the lyrics of their best hit insists: "I Sold My Heart To The Junkman." Pictured are Gene Price, Reuben Saunders, Miss Bradford, Ormonde and Artie Waters. The boys are appearing in Detroit on the first leg of a cross country tour which will soon see them headlining a unit including either Jay McShann or Jesse Price's orchestra, Low Owens, Doris Smart and either Toni Palmer or Melrose Colbert.
