Issue(s): Daredevil #60
And it's... Hollis! Sure, you remember Hollis? Foggy Nelson's assistant? Who never appeared before this issue?
I guess the significant event of this issue is that Debbie Harris, who has a cloud over her head thanks to her involvement in the plot by the Organizer in her first appearance, wracks up some gambling debt and Crime-Wave tries to coerce her into betraying Foggy as a way to get out of it, but she refuses. So this is something of a redemption for her.
And a bit of real trivia: there's a Turk in this story, but he's got no relation to the more popular Turk that appears in later Daredevil stories. This one is a Bald Bull style stereotype of an actual Turkish person.
This Turk's partner is Shades McGraw. I don't know how a dude with that name didn't become a recurring character. Although his main purpose is to have the same body type as Matt Murdock and a known habit of wearing sunglasses at night so that Daredevil can impersonate him to sneak aboard Crime-Wave's gambling boat (after applying some hip-pocket chemicals to darken his hair color, natch).

How does one feel color...? Daredevil's sight confuses me so!

It's SIlver-Age radioactivity. They don't have to explain it.

Nah, it's just bad writing by Roy Thomas who hacks it real bad really often.

DD uses his little-known mood-ring sense to detect colors. Each color has a different emotional resonance, or tone. Matt can tune it to that 'cause he's really in touch with his emotions.
