Gerri Hall: Who can I run to/I lost the key


Scheduled as Sue WI 4026, but was not issued. Gerri Hall was nicknamed “Gerri” because of her crazy antics similar to the most popular clown of the time, Jerry Lewis. She is the sister-in-law of Rosemary (Hall) Domino and Reggie Hall, was from New Orleans and sang with Huey Piano Smith and the Clowns. Does anyone have up to date information for Gerri Hall please?

Chart position data not available.
