Bobby Lawton


Bobby's real name was most likely Bobby Edenfield

These song were first issued in 1962 as D Records 1238 under the name Bobby Fields.
Other Bobby Lawson releases on the same Tobby label :
713 Gonna Fall Out Of Love With You / Hello Heart
716 Please Come Get Your Memories  / I'm So Afraid Of Losing You Again    

just to clarify:
He is not Bobby Fields on REM, 1963  (=Bobby L. Benningfield)
He is not Bobby Fields on Ace  (=Bobby Marchan) and not Bobby Lawson on MRC.

The Redheads Ron & Melody


UA stands for Universal Audio which is one of the companies that succeeded Kay Bank after Vern Bank retired.  I haven't figured out how to decipher the meaning behind the UA matrix numbers.  G & A studio is also unknown to me.  I'm guessing G stood for George Garrett, who owned this label.  The address on the label is now a Kmart.

Twin Town 742 was made in 1969, so this must be early seventies.

Ish Gordon

"Ish" Gordon is probably Ishmael L Gordon (1917-2001 )

Pace Records had twenty country and gospel singles issued between 1959 and 1961.  The label is supposed to have been owned by Samuel "Sammy" Pace, about who I can't find a thing.
A discography of the label can be found here :

The Tune Toppers


Sound Recording Company
In 1951 Paul W. Carter (d. 1991) started the Sound Recording Company at his home on East Sinto Avenue in Spokane. By the following year SRC was based out of a storefront shop on South Howard Street and was advertising its services as "Complete recording facilities, commercial pressings, radio productions and transcripts, audition and reference recording, recording supplies, sales and service on all audio equipment."
SRC Records was launched in 1951 with 78 rpm singles by Spokane's Scandinavian polka band, Arly Nelson & the Tunetoppers, and by 1957 the firm had moved (200 Symons Building) where it -- including Carter's wife, Irene (d. 1996), who reportedly began engineering as well -- recorded various country bands (Charlie Ryan and the Timberline Riders), and teenage rock 'n' roll bands including Bobby Wayne and the Warriors ("War Paint"), the Four Playboys ("Jungle Stomp"), and the Renegades ("Black Jack").

Vicki Lynn


Not sure sure where this label was based.  There's a snippet in Billboard from 1964 about a 10-year old Vicki Lynn signing with Applause.  So she'd be 11 years old on this record.  Does this sound like an 11-year old?

Foltin Bros.


Bob the scared data miner writes:
This label was from Pennsylvania.  Probably their own ARC label and not related to any of other ARC labels.  Oddly enough for a local Pennsylvania act, the record was pressed, as it seems, by Southern Plastics (Nashville, Tennessee, April 1956)

Alexander G. Foltin, 88, of 614 Orange St., Lebanon died Thursday, November 12, 2009, Manor Care, Lebanon. He was the husband of the late June E. Watson Foltin.
Born April 6, 1921 in Catasauqua, PA, he was the son of the late Frank M. and Rosalie P. Langer Foltin.
He retired from the Lebanon Steel Foundry. He enjoyed playing guitar with his group the Drifting Plowboys. He was a member of the Lebanon VFW, American Legion, and the Friendship Fire Co. He was a U.S. Army veteran of World War II. He was a member of St. Mary's Church, Lebanon.
He is survived by 2 children: Barbara A., wife of Clifford Reichert, and Gene P. Foltin. 5 grandchildren: Karen, Earl, Shannon, Eric and Lisa. 7 great grandchildren. 4 Great great grandchildren. Several nieces and nephews. He was the last of his immediate family. He was preceded in death by 3 brothers: Joseph, Frank and Albert Foltin; and 2 sisters Lena Bering and Rose Solesky.

note added by me:  I'd be willing to bet they chose ARC as the name of the label to honor St. Joan of Arc church, since it seems they had a strong connection there.  Also, not sure which spelling is correct, Fulton or Foltin.
