John Henry




Do you think the folks who owned this label were trying to out-do Marvin Rainwater's Brave label? How about a "The other guys are just losers, we're the bravest mother's of them all" label?

Extremely Brave 1217
Unknown Year

Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves

I don't known the details, but my impression is that the two labels (Brave and Extremely Brave) were likely related.

Both were located in the same Illinois town and shared one or more producers. etc.

As anonymous said, Brave and Extremely Brave were somehow related I guess. If I'm not mistaken, Rainwater also recorded for this label. Hayden Thompson also released singles on Extremely Brave.
