BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 6/23/24
RECORDED IN HOLLYWOOD LABEL +

THE RED LIGHTNING LABEL

This week on BBS we’ll turn the spotlight on two historic record labels – both were home to the kind of music we present on the program. During Hour#2 we’ll present sides that were issued on the “Recorded In Hollywood Label”. Recorded In Hollywood Label was owned and operated by John Dolphin, who ran the historic record store, Dolphin’s In Hollywood. The Recorded In Hollywood label feature an assortment of West Coast stars including Percy Mayfield, Linda Hayes, Scatman Crothers and many more. Then during Hour #4 we’ll listen to sides reissued on The Red Lightning Label which was based in the U.K. Pete Shertster owned and operated this label which specialized in reissuing vintage Blues and R&B records on LP. This was one of the early labels reissuing Postwar recordings. Their catalog was a “Who’s Who” taken from the Blues discography. We’ll feature sides by Ike Turner, Johnny Guitar Watson, Little Milton, Big Walter, Robert Nighthawk and Minnie Moore. Catch up on your sleep Saturday afternoon sos you can rock with us after midnight.

Two historic labels! Only on BBS…
