The first pressing of this disc was by KING Records of Cincinnati, OH. The second press of this disc was by Plastic Products. The second has label address listed and the B side is published by Bayou State or in many cases, the publishing houses are scratched out (see RAYMONDS 755 for another example). Jeff Daniels was an alias for Luke McDaniels.

940 Deleware Ave, Lexington, KY

I thought about posting this before I classed it as an unknown record release. Fits by year (1959) but I'm not sure about the King Custom Pressing information.

772 appears where the account numb er usually rests on the label and the label itself is listed as # 222. Both sides published by Starday Music - another point on its inclusion.

I'm not 100% sure on this one. But with three emails stating it is and none suggesting that it isn't, I'll leave it for now. Britestar 772 is from 1962 so that doesn't count.

UNKNOWN LABEL 765
No Known Location


Although Brite-Star 765 fits in this gap, the Rite pressing number suggests this is a continuation of the label starting from #763. 764 was probably pressed by Starday but as a continuation of the label and besides, Alvic 764 has already taken its place in the listing. So we're left with a blank for 765 so far (March 2016)
