NB(1): SONORA Records advert Billboard Saturday 6th July 1946-SONORA H 7019.

NB(2):SONORA H 7019 reviewed SONRA advert Saturday 6th July 1946-The nationally popular Moore Sisters bring their songs direct to SONORA RECORDS from their own radio show over New York’s WOR and the Mutual Broadcasting System.

NB(3): SONORA H 7019 released Monday 1st July 1946.

NB(4): SONORA H 7019 reviewed Billboard Record Reviews Saturday 20th July 1946.-The Moore Trio (Viola, Bella and Yvonne) should please their fans with this brace of Western ditties. In its line the platter comes close to being socko all around-in material, treatment and qualityof reproduction. Top side is an 8-to-the-bar item geared to cowboy nickel-plungers, and the lassescasuallytrip off the tricky lyrics. Flip-over is in three-quarter time, rather melodic but schmaltzy. Harmonizing is again close and punchy. Predominant in the band backing is a somewhat overly pungent accordion and an underlying git-box. The girls inject their well-known yodelling only on “COWPUNCHER’S WALTZ,” however.

Both sides spell nickel-play for this Western platter.

NB(5: SONORA H 7020 released Monday 1st July 1946.
