Cut in records with R and B hits of the day. Hoyt ran a reasonably successful beauty products company. (See advert below). He later owned HSE Records (Amongst others) where he recorded Gospel Music. I'm figured Hoyt was (is) black, but according to Alistair Blazaar, he was white. (MC)

CAMPBELL TRIO with Jerry Tuttle (Steel Gtr)
45-614-A - Satan Lost A Sinner
(Jack and Billy Campbell)   (Starrite BMI)
45-614-B - God Can Do Without Your Service
(Jack and Billy Campbell)   (Starrite BMI)


Nice, delicate white gospel (with a hillbilly flavour)  from the Campbell Trio. It's the harmonies that win me over here. A side is taken at a faster clip than the B side, but it's the B side I prefer. Jerry Tuttle, the steel guitarist appears on a Rite Pressing from 62 (King Tutt - "Twisting At The Little Big Horn" / "Shorter Hours In School" - STARLINE RECORDS 1001 (Flint, MI), and hie had at least one release on Dot Records ("Tweedle-O-Twill" / "Bop Goes The Weasel" - DOT 16093). As for the Campbell Trio - nada!

ART RODGERS with the Texas Top hands
45-613-A - Our anniversary
(Rodgers)   (Starrite BMI)
45-613-B - Ten Thousand Miles
(Rodgers)   (Starrite BMI)

Another slightly blurred label shot from another unknown artist. I found an Art Rodgers on Seven Stars Label from Cincinnati, OH from 57, and it's possibly the same artist, but not 100% certain. The A side is a nice mid-tempo honky-tonk song. (Maybe it's my dodgy hearing and the bad condition of the disc) but he sounds to be about 30-40 years old). Flip side is mid tempo but more in the hillbilly vein. Nice fiddles and steel guitar. B side has some nice harmonies as well. (MC)
