Rockstar Records

There are new and exciting music projects in production for the reactivated ‘Rockstar’ record label. The label was founded in 1979 and based in the Essex area of Great Britain, and undertook what major labels were failing to do, providing the music fans with both issued and un-issued music from classic Rock ‘n’ Roll artists. The label focused on ‘A’ grade rockers, for example Eddie Cochran (the labels main artist), Gene Vincent, Johnny Burnette, Bob Luman, the Jodimars (members of which were part of Bill Haley’s original band) and other luminaries.

In 2016 Richard Weize, founder of Germany’s legendary ‘Bear Family’ label, acquired the ‘Rockstar’ label (including Crest, Ekko and Silver) and the legacy will continue.
However to fit with the changing trends within the music scene the music will be available on-line as downloads or streaming.

Crest
The first steps of artists are of special interest for music lovers. Many young musicians started out with Crest. The Californian label released early attempts by singers like Eddie Cochran or Glen Campbell, who later were world-renowned. Sylvester Cross, president of American Music, Inc. published thousands of songs during the 1940s, in most cases for a fee of about $60. Although the company was charging songwriters to record and publish their music, they did have hundreds of hit songs. Many of these recordings served as demos for cover records by popular artists. Sylvester Cross, a real estate developer by trade, ran American Music as his secondary business. The Crest's offices were located at 9109 Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, California. Crest started operating in 1954, released its first records in 1955 and closed down in 1963. Crest Records recorded a long list of artists in a wide variety of styles. Among the artists who recorded for the label were Jewel Akens, Eddie Cochran, Carol Kaye, Bobby Edwards, Jimmy Bowen, Tom Tall, Donna Loren, Bob Denton, Terry Fell and Glen Campbell, Glen Garrison, Vern Stovall.
The label scored a hit with the song Three Stars, a tribute record to Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper, written and performed by DJ Tommy Dee. Another hit was Turn Around, Look At Me from Glen Campbell.
However to fit with the changing trends within the music scene the music will be available on-line as downloads or streaming.

Ekko Records
Ekko Records was an independent record label operating in the 1940s and 1950s from Memphis, Tennessee releasing records mostly in western swing and Country music style.
Ekko was founded by Ed Bloodworth and operated from two offices, one from 4949 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, California and the head office on Union Avenue in Memphis (also home to Sun Records). Among the artists who recorded for the label were Eddie Bond, Johnny Tyler, Buddy Griffin, Riley Crabtree, and Al Dexter. Also recording for the label were The Cochran Brothers featuring Eddie and Hank Cochran.
However to fit with the changing trends within the music scene the music will be available on-line as downloads or streaming.
