The Blendwrights
Let Down The Ladder
Savoy Record Company MG-14070

From the back cover: The Blend Wrights (as the name appears on the back cover, but is referred to online in instances as The Blendwrights) Trio, are all native Ohioans, born in Dayton, where they spent their early childhood. While still very young, the family moved away from the noise of the city to a home in the beautiful country side near the village of Germantown, Ohio. Here, in this peaceful environment, living close to nature, they worked, played, sang and prayed together under the guidance of Christian parents.

The Blend Wrights consisted of Eleanor, Erving and Audrey Wright.
