Halliquins (ref Carusos) – Confession Of Love (2:25)/ Haunting Memories (2:15), ’58 (Juanita 102 & Early Bird 004, ’96)

  • In 1958, the titles were resung (assumed by the Carusos group or some members of this group) and released on the Juanita label and credited as the Halliquins.
  • Label scans for Juanita and Early Bird are ‘Halliquins.’
  • The book listed in error as the ‘Harlequins’ on the Juanita label.

    • The Carusos’ scans support the articles I’ve read. Post changed to reflect Frank (Dual Trumpet Motley & His Crew) which does not appear on the Juanita label.
