THE LABELS:

LABELSNOTES
L&C Luke & Cuca - founded and operated by Luke Gordon (& his first wife Cuca).
The LP was pressed in a quantity of minimum 300 copies by Rite Record Productions, Inc., Cincinatti, OH
and came with a plain white cover. The release of the LP was the brainchild of a local promoter and booker, Walter Krause. Walter's
plan was to distribute the LPs to radio stations and sell what was left over. It was an attempt to give Luke and the band exposure and
create show dates.
The LP used tracks from the first three (at that time unreleased) sessions, and one early take/version of "Dark Hollow" recorded in 1958.
The 45 was pressed by Starday "Custom" in limited quantity - minimum 300 copies, and intended to be sold at live shows. The tracks used
came from the fourth session.
Starday Starday "Custom Series" - pressed in limited quantity - minimum 300 copies. Starday letter (repro) to artists etc. in PDF
If you are interested to see more about Starday Custom releases, please visit Malcolm Chapman's great blogsite.
Quincy Founded and operated by Luke Gordon - limited quantity pressed by Rite Record Productions, Inc., Cincinatti, OH.
Blue Ridge Mainly a bluegrass label.
The label was purchased by Don Owens, Bill Clifton and a silent partner, Joe Sissler. Clifton soon dropped out of the deal and it was
really Don calling the shots with Sissler's cash.
Empire An outlet for Ben Adelman's production.
Ben leased several of Luke's early/late 1950s recordings to low budget labels like Premier Albums Inc. (which included Spin-O-Rama & Coronet), New York, NY and Mount Vernon Music, New York, NY.
Nashville A branch of Starday Records.
W.A.P. World Artist(s) Productions was founded and operated by Luke Gordon - limited quantity pressed. Some albums also released on cassettes.
Riverside Operated by Riverside Sound Studio and released under agreement with Luke Gordon.

A GREAT THANKS TO KENT HEINEMAN FOR HIS FANTASTIC HELP WITH THIS PROJECT!

Also thanks to several others, including JAY BRUDER for his patience with me and kind help, and RIC NELSON, who played
dobro on Luke's second session and live shows from 1955 until 1961, and later some live shows until 2001 during
the days of W.A.P. - and the last one from Luke's Ben Adelman sessions in the 1950s that lived longest.
