In the late 1950s in New York City, Bobby Robinson started the Fire, Fury, Enjoy, Everlast and Revelation record labels. He had a number of national hits which kept the labels going for awhile, such as Kansas City (Wilbert Harrison); Fannie Mae (Buster Brown); There Is Something On Your Mind (Bobby Marchan); Letter Full Of Tears (Gladys Knight); I Need Your Lovin' (Don Gardner & Dee Dee Ford) and Ya Ya (Lee Dorsey). When the hits dried up he leased the masters to Bell Records who put some of them out on their "Sphere Sound" subsidiary, and a couple on Bell itself.

Note that the white cover first Buster Brown LP is numbered 102 on the jacket, but 101 on the record label. I think there's probably a Revelation 5001. Anybody have it or know? And, Sphere Sound leased the Maurice Williams album from the Herald/Ember label.

Thanks to Dennis & Bill for contributing albums to be photographed. Thanks to the wonderful website Both Sides Now for their discographies which are always a big help.
