I'm a bit confused here. The Kay Bank issue has Twin Town Music Co at the bottom of the label, yet the label name is clearly Kay Bank. But I also have it listed as Twin Town 1001. No label shots for that one. 

Apparently there were three Hathaway Brothers who all played music and were based in the Elk River area. "Wild Roses" is a nice country shuffler featuring accordian, pretty heavy double bass (finger picked, not slapped), and some nice  country guitar. Flip side is heavily influenced by Hank Williams, especially with the take off of Love Sick blues at the beginning. Nice band with a pleasant enough voice.

Label shots: Derik
