(Vern Pullens)BIG HOWDY 782 Box 870, Bogalusa, LA Personally, I don't think this is a Starday Custom but it's listed in Nate Gibsons excellent Starday Story book, and also appears on Youtube as a custom. I've listed it here in the vain hope somebody can tell me either way.

JAMES GALLAGHER Mar 59 (Rcs = Jul 59) 772-45-222-A - Are You The One (Starday Music) 772-45-222-B - Ford And Shaker (Starday Music) B and G 772 940 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. Source: Terry Gordon, Tom Krajina, Michel Proost, Apes Ville.

NO KNOWN ARTIST Mar 59 765-A - (No Info) 765-B - (No Info) 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)
