CASINO 4797
Gatonia, NC

The band hailed from Gastonia, NC and recorded several 45's and at least 1 LP between 1960-1968. James Bates is the lead on the A side and Joe Dowell covered the ballad on the B side. Unusual for a Carolina Record not to have  Arthur Smith Studio listed on the label, so perhaps it was recorded elsewhere.
