Statistics: Slightly more than June 10th but not sure exactly.

Thanks to all who emailed and inquired if I had died or why I hadn't updated the site much over the summer. Over the July 4th weekend the hard drive on my computer failed and was unrecoverable. I lost some images and data but the majority of my collected image and sound files (23,000+ files) were safely stored on a separate flash drive. After a week of repairs and reloading software I had a starting point but a long process of rebuilding and synchronizing was still ahead.

After 18 months of daily work to create this site and build the databases the loss was mentally overwhelming so I took the summer off from the project and worked on other hobbies & interests which I had neglected for the past couple of years. Now refreshed and excited again I'm ready to get back to work on this site again!

Thanks to everyone who sent info, images and sound files this summer! I have 100's of new listings and images to add to the site ASAP.

Statistics: 1138 record labels, 5731 individual records, 4493 images of labels, sleeves, artists, etc.

Been working on a special project lately that I've been putting off for a long time, Rite's better known house labels - A Gateway Top Tune (Top Tunes - Parade Of Hits) and Big 4 Hits.

The Gateway label (1953-1958) is in the standard single format and runs from issue # 1050 to 1253 before becoming Coast To Coast Parade Of Hits (plus other names) after moving to Philadelphia, PA. Earlier releases appeared on the "Top Tunes" label. Later releases were issued on both the "A Gateway Top Tune" and "Gateway Parade Of Hits" labels. Many if not all of the latter issues appeared on both labels at the same time.

Big 4 Hits label was issued by Rite as an Extended Play series and ran numerically from # 10 to 236. Rite sold the labels to a company in Philadelphia at about Gateway 1214 and Big 4 Hits 217 although the records were still manufactured by Rite. Most of the songs were released on both the Gateway and Big 4 Hits labels at about the same time.

I have extensive but not quite 100% complete information on both labels. I should have all available data on the website in another week. I'll make a note here when I run out of info and need help from all of you - Thanks!

One other interesting addition is a very rare copy of Lattie Moore's 1st recording on the Arrow label from Indianapolis, Indiana in 1951. It is a hot country boogie tune entitled "Married Troubles." I need to get audio clips on soon so you can here some of this stuff!

Enjoy, Dan

A year ago I had estimated that 5000-6000 listings was pretty much all I knew about the records of this area and the releases by Rite, King, QCA, etc. pressing plants. However, once the ball got rolling, so many of you have made significant contributions that this project is probably little more than halfway with the information currently at hand. Again, thank you to all who have contributed great or small to made this source of information the best possible for the collector of American styles of music.

New local labels added since the last posting include: Autumn, Brite, Compass, Crutch, Dell, Delta Int., Gateway (IN), HIO, JAR, Jones, Karen, M&M, Music Mountain, Norg, O-Bo, Philmore Sound, Popsy, Pork, Rite, Shropshire, Silver Star, Smiling, Sovereign, Sunshine (WV), TOGY, Western Hills Bandwagon and Whizenglo.

Friday, December 12, 2008

Database is now up to: 996 record labels, 4978 individual records and 3884 images of labels, sleeves, artists, etc.

I've been adding a lot of images lately which really helps to groom and correct the data. Earlier this year, when I was just starting on this project, I just wanted to get data into the system as fast as I could so the website would start to take shape. Now I'm finding and correcting many typos in artists names, song titles, etc. that may have been a result of that haste. Please feel free to suggest corrections. Your input is always appreciated!

Reworked the Excellent label from Cincinnati, Ohio this week. Added several more listings and replaced all 16 previous images with improved images as well as added 24 additional images. 20 of the 32 listings now have decent photos to document them. Thanks go to Al Turner, Michel Proost and Udo Frank for their help with this label.

New local labels added this week include a randon mix of stuff: Black Forest, Bert Murray, Captain, Cleveland Robinson Sings, DC Recording (IN), DC Recording (KY), Evana, Forest View, Janey, Jimmy Thompson Music, Nap-Town, Polly Bee, Pro. Recordings and Roosevelt Lee.

The car pictured below is a 1952 Crosley Super Sport. The car was the brainchild of Powel Crosley who pioneered radio broadcasting with his radio station 700 WLW in Cincinnati. In the 1920's to the 1940's he produced Crosley Radios, TV's and appliances such as the Shelvadore Refrigerators. He also owned the Cincinnati Reds from 1932 - 1961. He made about 80,000 Crosley automobiles from 1939 - 1952.

The RITE Custom Pressing listing will pass 1700 total listings today. This is the area I have been working on most over the last two weeks. Most of the new labels and listings below were pressed by RITE. Many of these labels are from outside of the Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky & West Virginia area but are necessary to make the RITE listing as complete as possible. I will also go outside of the area for KING and QCA pressings.

Speaking of RITE Custom Pressings, be sure to check the That's All RITE Mama blog regularly for more detailed info on some of the RITE pressings. There's some cool info there!

1952 Crosley Super Sport
Can anybody tell me what it is? Hint: It's from Cincinnati, Ohio!

Enjoy, Dan

Saturday, November 29, 2008

Made a significant addition to the RITE Custom Pressing information today. I have posted a couple sample Master Log Pages from the original RITE files. This gives a little clearer insight into their production and delivery time.

Here's one from 1975 and one from 1981.

Also added the exact date and matrix number where RITE changed from consecutive matrix numbers for each side of a record to one shared matrix number with side A & B denoting the 2 sides of the record.

Enjoy! Dan

Monday, November 24, 2008

Database is now up to: 923 record labels, 4720 individual records and 3513 images of labels, sleeves, artists, etc.

A huge thank you to Udo Frank for sending over 1300 label images last week carefully selected from his incredible collection of images. Along with the images were many corrections and additions to the existing data. Many of the images were records I had never seen before so more additons and corrections came from seeing the photos. I have only had time to add about 120 of his images so far so many more will be added in the near future.

Rusty York's Jewel Recording Studios was auctioned off at the end of October. It looks like almost nothing in the 51 year collection was held back as many rare and unique items were sold. I hope some of you had a chance to get a piece of history as I found out after the fact so was not able to bid. Please click here for the story and auction results.

New labels added this week include: Bon-Win, Casey, Colyer, Country Corner, Evans, Hillside, House Guests, QCA, Spinner and Verann. Labels with significant additions of listings or images include: Cee Gee, Goldenrod, M and J, M Records, Southtown, Summit and Toy Tiger.

Worked mostly this week on documenting and adding to the listing of RITE Pressings. The RITE pressing discography currently stands at 1411 listings but is not even close to complete. It should reach at least 2000 listing by the end of the year. Should have over 1000 record labels in the database by then also.

Check out the major additions to Clay Eager's Karl Label from London, Ohio. Thanks, Matt! Also check out these labels related to the Karl Label - Anna May Johnson, Coda, Clay Eager, Crawford Bros and Sunny-Lee.

Here's some other labels added since the last posting: Bovi, Hollywood New World, Opus, Roll Call, Seaway, Scoot, Stang, Starrett, Top Hit, Tri City, Unity, Vance, Wright-Tone, W.E.C. and Woody.

Thanks again to all the contributors to the site! Sincerely, Dan

Wednesday, October 1, 2008

Statistics: 733 record labels, 4006 individual records, 2605 images of labels, sleeves, artists, etc.

Record Labels by State:

  • Ohio - 367 labels
  • Indiana - 104 labels
  • Kentucky - 81 labels
  • West Virginia - 25 labels

Record Listings by Pressing Plants:

  • 156 QCA (Cincinnati, OH) pressings
  • 117 COLUMBIA (Nashville, Chicago & New York) pressings

Friday, September 19, 2008

Database is now up to: 701 record labels, 3824 individual records and 2448 images of labels, sleeves, artists, etc.

Largest labels added since last update were Ohio's Wam (18 listings) and West Virginia's Wheeling label (42 listings). Other labels added include Action, Blue Eagle, Co-Co Cleveland, Eldee, H And K, One-Way, Panics, Pennant, Star Trek, Surf, Trim and Way-Vee. Also added more images to Kentucky's Acme label. Due to high winds from the remains of Hurricane Ike last Sunday, much of Southwest Ohio lost power including yours truly. This computer / internet connection was dead from Sunday to Thursday but is now up and running. As always, thanks for reading this! Dan

Sunday, September 7, 2008

Database is now up to: 691 record labels, 3679 individual records and 2343 images of labels, sleeves, artists, etc.

I believe this is one of the most complete discographies in print or online of Harry Glenn's Mar-Vel, Glenn & H And K labels including a photo and brief biography of Glenn. It contains 137 of Glenn's approximately 140+ releases and lists all Mar-Vel, Glenn & H And K releases combined in record number order. Glenn's unusual record numbering system was mixed between labels while giving a consecutive chunk of numbers to each artist. Listing the releases in chronological order would be more confusing.

Other than Indiana's Mar-Vel & Glenn labels most database work in the last few weeks has been on adding images and releases to existing labels. Thanks again to all who have contributed info recently! Dan

Tuesday, August 19, 2008

Database Statistics:

  • 683 record labels, 3517 individual records, 2190 images of labels, sleeves, artists, etc.

Work on adding new labels has slowed recently as I've tried to keep up with increased submissions from contributors. Your input is highly valued and exciting as I enjoy seeing new labels and releases from this area as much or more than anyone! Contributions are welcome and encouraged, please contact me with any additions or corrections. Of course, a huge thank you to those who are already emailing on a regular basis.

One of the keys to this website is the integration between the local artist / labels and the pressing plants where these records were created. Here's what's in the database currently:

  • 994 RITE (Cincinnati, OH) pressings - 698 with account #'s
  • 732 RCA (Indianapolis, IN) pressings
  • 391 KING (Cincinnati, OH) pressings
  • 140 QCA (Cincinnati, OH) pressings
  • 114 COLUMBIA (Nashville, Chicago & New York) pressings
  • 69 MUSICOL (Columbus, OH) pressings

Of course, this is just scratching the surface as RITE alone pressed about 20,000 different records during it's 30 years of custom pressing! Look for about 2000 RITE pressings on this website by next spring.

Updated Ark with additional info and many more label scans, added Alpat, Alpha Omega, Dean, Kale, Lucky (KY), Pelpal, Raddix, Rockcastle & Wil-Met. Thanks again for reading this, Dan

Monday, August 4, 2008

Database is now up to: 670 labels (Ohio - 341, Indiana - 97, Kentucky - 76, West Va. - 23), 3459 individual records.

This was Mus-I-Col week. Restructured the database to accomodate a recording studio / pressing plant that had records pressed by another pressing plant (Rite) during the first couple years before adding record pressing to their services in 1969. So you can now see the output of the Mus-I-Col Recording Studios separately from releases on the Mus-I-Col label.

Other labels added this week include: New Day (Toledo), Imperi & Al, 3-J, Ironbeat, Hull, New Day (Columbus), Brandt, Vernon, Prix, Columbus and Gangland. Enjoy! Dan

Thanks again for all your emails and huge thanks to those who have made significant contributions to the site including Al Turner, Andrew Bohan, Reg Bartlette, Udo Frank, Tim Kays, Tom Arkle and many others. The eventual completeness of this site can only be achieved by a shared effort and I sincerely thank those who are sharing from their collections.

Summer is here and that means I'm painting the porch, working in the yard and tinkering in the garage as well as digging through records in the basement and typing on the computer. However, progress is still being made not just in new listings but also in updating existing info and adding more images.

Labels added since the last posting here include: Campfire, Clay Eager, Jimmie Williams Sings, Komet, LeRoy's, LTD, Maestro, Master, Melody, Midnight (Mansfield), Midnight (Toledo), Midwestern, Perry, Ralph Johnson, Redbug, Revello, River Witch, Pix, Pixie, Simpson and a few others.

Major label additions (thanks to Al Turner) include Arc, Alcar, Brite Star, REM and Kentucky. RITE Record's Kentucky label went from 18 listings to well over 100 with documentation on every release. Enjoy! Dan

Database is now up to: 556 labels, 2917 individual records.

KING Custom Pressings Identification and Dating info is now posted on the website! Although I've collected data and researched this for about 25 years, it is still a work in progress and subject to future tweaking. Check it out and as always, additional information is always welcome!

Recent new listings include: Prudential, Seascape, K & H, Kala, Kalko, Kasko, Kasper, Kay-Gee, WLC, Town-Crier, Tippi, Keet, Keldon, Crystal, Empirestate, Zipp and ZZ. Here's a nice 1987 interview with Jimmie John (James D. Fullen) who recorded a number of interesting tunes for Emperor and his own ZZ label from 1957 to 1961. Enjoy, Dan

Tuesday, May 13, 2008

Database is now up to: 506 labels, 2477 individual records (Still less than half way but getting interesting!)

*** This week I added an Alphabetical Artist Listing of all the artists in the database. Now you can look for information by artist, label, pressing plant, musical style, state and more!

Saxony is one of my favorite Cincinnati labels. Great vocal harmony doowop (Rollie Willis & The Contenders, Cabarets) and one of the best girl groups ever (Teardrops) plus some soul and garage releases! Gifted songwriter and Saxony co-founder, Paul Trefzger, still has some original releases available plus cool 45 rpm reissues of hard-to-get Saxony favorites as well as unreleased material. CD's are available too! Click Here for a complete discography of all Saxony originals and reissues. Please visit the Saxony Record Company website to purchase Saxony material!

New labels added this week include Jodda, Johnnycake, Juke, June, Jurny, JD, JRE, K, K-W, Ken-H, Walton and Dayton's garage and soul label - Prism. I'll be adding more labels this week that start with "K" and "L".

Monday, May 5, 2008

Database is now up to: 493 labels, 2363 individual records

Received many more emails in the last week. I've enjoyed corresponding with other researchers, label owners and collectors, thanks! Please remember, this website is still in it's infancy. Over the next year it will expand and improve in many ways. Thanks again for your patience as I continue to add individual releases and labels to the database.

Most recent additions include Arvis photos, additional Jewel releases plus Jewel subsidary labels Teen and Log Cabin, Ark subsidary Tela-Star plus Tam, Jet (WV) and Lemco. Thanks again, Dan

Wednesday, April 23, 2008

Database is now up to:

  • 483 record labels
  • 2259 individual records

The weather is getting nicer and my wife wants me to do something besides type on the computer. In spite of that, there are some interesting additions to the database in the last week. Most significant are Jack Lynch's Jalyn Label and the start of Rusty York's Jewel Label! Jalyn is complete for now and I'll finish the rest of my current data on Jewel this week.

Other interesting labels added this week are Fabar, Hi-Note, Hi-Point, Jamboree, Janet, Jerrlen, Jet and Joni. Enjoy!

Monday, April 14, 2008

There are now over 1200 local label images including record labels, picture sleeves and photos and I'm still just scratching the surface. Currently working on the more significant labels starting with the letter "J".

Monday, April 7, 2008

Database is now up to:

  • 435 record labels
  • 1962 individual records

This week Columbia, Capitol and American Record Pressing (ARP) pressing info was expanded and enhanced. King pressing info has also been percolating in the background and is nearly ready to be posted.

Recordwise, added a dozen new labels including; Top Dog, Rene', Skoop, Sparkel, White Star, Buz, Jam, Holiday (Columbus, Ohio), Holiday (KY), Glass City, New Song and Nikko. Fraternity Records is now up to 150 listings and continuing to grow. 100's of labels left to go - I'm having fun, I hope you are!

Tuesday, April 1, 2008

Database is now up to:

  • 423 record labels
  • 1833 individual records

Over the weekend completed Finch and Capsoul, added Fujimo, Flying V, Gary, Plato, Flo-Roe. Sunday morning I found 9 different Capsoul 45's in an odd box in my basement so that info is much improved and lots of pictures added! Indiana's Fujimo label is a special one so I took my time and made it as detailed as possible with lots of photos.

Working currently on Cincinnati's Fraternity Label. Lots of great records were released on this label that spanned over 25 years and upwards of 400 releases. I don't know of a definitive discography of this label on the web or in print so check it out as it progresses!

Friday, March 28, 2008

Database is now up to:

  • 417 record labels
  • 1728 individual records

This week - completed Blue Onion and Farrall, added - Ebony, Colony, ESV, Emerald, M erald, M Records, Dupree, MC, Glee, DKR, Elysian, Fabar, Falcon, Fan and Fig. A stack of Finch 45's are sitting next to me so they'll be next!

Monday, March 24, 2008

Current status of the database:

  • 400 record labels
  • 1630 individual records

Instead of going slowly through the alphabet, I'm switching to working on completing some of the labels that are already on the site and adding major labels that are the most interest. So here's what's happened over the weekend: completed the following labels; Poor Boy, Karl, Yolk and added; Deco, Donna, Name, Olimpic, Note and Tyme.

Friday, March 21, 2008

Major labels that start with "C" are in the database so I'm now working on labels that start with "D". The most interesting labels I added or filled out this week are: Emperor, Cozy, Hilltop, Huron and I started on Fraternity. Fraternity will have about 400 listings when complete so for now I listed some of the cool, early ones. Also check out "The History of King Records."

Monday, March 17, 2008

Modified the Labels table so the state index pages (OH, IN, KY & WV) now show how many individual listings there are for each label. Not all labels had equal output so this shows which labels issued more records.

  • 383 record labels
  • 1445 individual records

Added 12 more labels that start with "C" including Clearhill and Counterpart (77 listings!) Should get well into the D's this week. Yes, I do go to work everyday so I can only do this when time is available.

I've received a number of very nice e-mails from some of you. A sincere thank you to those who took time to tell me what you think (all positive so far!) Please tell your friends so more may enjoy the information!

Friday, March 14, 2008

Took a break from the "C" labels and did Larry Short's Ruby Label from Hamilton Ohio. 40+ listings and nearly 40 photos including a picture sleeve (with no picture) and a photo of Arnold Van Winkle in the Ruby Recording Studio. Check it out!

Thursday, March 13, 2008

  • 369 record labels
  • 1298 individual records

Added 20 more labels, most of which start with the letter C, including these favorites: Capsoul, Cardinal, De'Besth and Cinemasound. Probably have 20 more "C" labels to go before I'm up to the D's. Enjoy!

Sunday, March 9, 2008

A big snowstorm allowed some extra updating the last couple of days. I added a RITE Discography sorted by Account Numbers. This is interesting as it shows which labels are related. Check it out here!

Added over 100 new photos plus added or made major updates to about 25 labels including Carlco, Spangle, Terry, Savoy, Tammy, Clover, Early Bird, Drive, Debonair, Vincent, Vangee, Dani, Dale, Daysel, Dess, Duncan, Tally, Elgest, Claudra, Cherry, Cherokee and more. The ones in bold can be clicked on to go there.

The old website used standard HTML and all the pages ended in .htm. The new site depends on PHP scripting so all the pages end in .php. If I didn't preserve the old site it would have no continuity in search engines and basically be a completely new site. I've spent a great deal of time the last few days modifying the old website so people could still find it.

Wednesday, March 5, 2008

Today is the day! I've switched this website over to the new database driven design that's been in development for over three months. I hope you find it interesting, but keep in mind the database is less than 10% complete!

Monday, March 3, 2008

Current status of the database:

  • 318 record labels
  • 1132 individual records

Added the following labels: Blue Dot, Blue Giant, Blue Grass Special, Blue Jay, Bobby, Bold, Boone, Bonzana (OH & KY), Boss, Bounty, Bowery, Box, Brock, Bluegrass (IN), Bryte, Buckeye, Bur-K, Burdette, B-W, Blue Onion, Hard Times and Saxony. The ones I like the best are in bold (check out Saxony!) and you can click on them and go there from here. All major labels that start with "B" are now on the website. Over 100 more images have been added!

Friday, February 29, 2008

I made one page today but it took all day, it's the Rite company owned labels information. Check it out here. Also I posted a letter to Carl Burkhardt, owner/founder of Rite records from early 1950. This is part of the stuff Carl gave me a long time ago. It's interesting just for being so old!

Thursday, February 28, 2008

The last few days have been spent getting the website ready to launch. Created new pages and content for picture sleeves, ep's and company sleeves. These have temporary content so they are attractive but will eventually have their own separate databases of information. Also have converted links page, 45 rpm history, RCA record players & individual dating information pages for RITE, RCA, QCA, KING, Monarch, Musicol and RITE's in-house labels to new php scripted pages. Plus lots more details that are too boring to list.

Sunday, February 24, 2008

Current status of the database:

  • 288 record labels
  • 1004 individual records

Added 18 images and completed the following labels; Fern, Patrice, Kernel and Whispering Pines. Rite listing is complete through the end of 1960. Revised Rite account numbering so the 1st appearance of a new Rite account number is now marked with an asterisk * instead of being bold. (HTML coding for bold caused it not to sort properly.)

Saturday, February 23, 2008

Added 22 images and the following labels: Mandingo, B & 4, Ban Com, Baron, Bay Shore, Bel-Kay, Ben, BES, BFM, Amos Johnson, Big Bang, BiM, Blackcrest, Blank and Blue Angel.

Friday, February 22, 2008

Current status of the database:

  • 273 record labels
  • 879 individual records
  • Ohio - 100 labels, 221 images
  • Indiana - 20 labels, 30 images
  • Kentucky - 26 labels, 60 images
  • West Virginia - 6 labels, 7 images

Added 14 Ohio labels including Early, Eastwood, Harvey, Hilltop (Cin), Jeanie, Lads, Lemon Lime, Oh My, Pattie, PJ, Reese, Shawnee, Sure Play and The Livin' End plus photos for most of those labels. Also completed the Lee label.

Thursday, February 21, 2008

Completed the Destiny label. Worked on completing the Rite discography through 1960. Major labels that start with the letter A are now on the website.
