That's right, all 4 of your records are out already. That's the jinx of winning last month.

Actually at this point my favorite record in the contest is "Mercy Me."

However, I will add that the Bob Doss record is IMO the best "white
record" that's been in these contests since February. If we can't get
Carl Perkins into the winners' circle at least we can get someone who
sounds a lot like him.

I've got an entry next month that I think is by white artists and will appeal to you and most every one, and it's not Rockabilly. So, if Doss doesn't make it, maybe next month.

Singles Battles

I know the Crew Cuts were white. Also the others mentioned. This one I can't tell on the to be nominated side. The flip sounds white to me. Can't find any pictures and I've looked pretty hard.

Impossible to tell unless you give us some kind of a hint

BTW Just as my four for July were from 1956 my four for August will be
from 1957 with one that I recall being a big favorite of yours on the
short list

Instead of a hint, I e-mailed you the title of the record. Maybe you could rely by e-mail or at least don't mention the record in the group.

Snooky, Sammy and the Solitaires move into the quarterfinals. The Swans and Barlow are gone although the Swans still has a chance to still advance depending upon the scores of the other 4th place records. The Swans edged Barlow by virtue of being ranked higher on 6 of the 10 ballots.

The Solitaires overcame 4 last place rankings with 2 first place rankings and 2 second place rankings
