Here it is...

Info on the Wallace Brothers is hard to come by. Word is that they were two cousins out of Atlanta even though their only album has a picture of three guys on it.

It's actually pretty strange that there ever was an album, because they only released 12 singles.....eight on the Sims label....three on on Royal. There are an awful lot of artists who produced scads more work and never had an album issued in their name.

While the singles may not knock you out with a bang, there is something special about the Wallace Brothers. Once heard, the songs continue to linger in the mind. I dunno what it is for sure....but I do wonder if there isn't some kind of purity at work. And ya know, maybe that's just another way of saying their work is classic, in the real sense of the word.

Hope ya enjoy....the song's from 1965.
