Little Labels -Big Sound

Small Record Companies and the Rise of American Music



Rick Kennedy and Randy McNutt

Foreword by Al Kooper



A wild ride through American popular music.



[T]hese cats had their ears to the ground and cut vinyl that created the hip sounds of the day, sounds that still reverberate today.... Little Labels-Big Sound is a great primer into the history of these... independent record labels."

-Blue Suede News



[L]ike the labels it celebrates and the 45s and the 78s those labels put out... full of exciting and vital content."

-San Francisco Chronicle



In this straightforward and engaging collection of histories and profiles, the authors present a brisk overview of important indies and a look at several distinctive companies and the men who ran them..." -Billboard



Show me a man today who could stand up to a Syd Nathan or a Don Robey, and I'll show you a man behind bars-not behind a desk. Why, without Sam Phillips, the founder of Sun Records and the man who unearthed Elvis, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, Rufus Thomas, and Howling Wolf to name but a few, there might not even have been any rock 'n' roll, electric blues, or rockabilly music."

-Al Kooper, from the Foreword
