    Biography :

    In May of 1959, The Hurricanes had hooked up with a new record label run by Bill Lasley called Memo Records, and had conveniently changed their name to The Memos. "I'm Going Home" and "My Most Precious Possession" are released on Memo # 500.

    The label reports good reaction to the record in some Southern states. In October The Memos appear at a big anniversary show for Newark, New Jersey radio personality George Hudson at the Mosque Theater. That month "My Type Of Girl" and "The Biddy Leg" are released on Memo # 34891. This record went nowhere and the group never recorded again.
