Re: [ARSCLIST] Duncan Sisters
Entirely possible..they kept up their vaudeville act, did some soundies, did
some 50s television appearances, recorded a couple of Christmas sides (not
these) in 1947 per one source, and the name would have been too well known for
anyone to use it as a pseudonym around 1950.
The person to ask is Peter Muldavin, the Kiddie Rekord King (and recent ARSC
winner)..his VINTAGE CHILDREN'S RECORDS book lists the Star-Bright label but
only up to R1020. Peter, over to you.

The Duncan sisters are credited performers on two 7" 78 kids records, both
on Star Bright Classics. They are:
1029 Angel On Top of the Xmas Tree (Duncan Sisters)/Rudolph the
usual. (uncredited) and
1030 Jolly Ole Fella (D. Gilmore-W.W.Worth- Duncan Sisters)/Frosty
the Snowman (uncredited)
The "Santa" character has a deep voice- could be Ruby Helder, Tugboat Annie,
etc. Mrs. Claus and other incidental characters is clearly a woman- soprano
and little child sounds.
Anyone know if these are the "Topsy and Eva" Duncan sisters?
