                                                                                                                               Los Angeles, Ca:                                                       January 1946

NB(2): BILLBOARD Advance Releases Saturday 6th July 1946-MEMO 5007.
NB(3): MEMO 5007 reviewed Billboard Saturday 2nd November 1946-It’s unfortunate that Curt Barrett’s well-sung DETOUR should come so late. With The Trailsmen lending instrumental and vocal support, Barrett’s version compares favourably with the best of them. He’s in great voice for the reverse, convincingly pleading SHARE A LITTLE OF THE BLAME as fiddles and guitar add to the western flavour. If DETOUR can still stop’em, this one will win replays.
