Art Rupe Talks About Specialty Records And The R&B Scene In L.A. in 1949 -  Pop Chronicles

8:00 AM – A SURVEY OF SPECIALTY RECORDS
This morning, we’re taking a stroll through the catalog of Specialty Records,
one of the pioneering West Coast labels for jump blues, R&B, and gospel
from the mid-1940s to the early 1960s.

Boogie #1
The Sepia Tones
Juke Box Records 1944
Before there was Specialty there was Juke Box Records, a small independent label started by Ben Siegel and Art Rupe when decided to leave Atlas Records in 1944. Siegel and Rupe managed to release just one single in 1944, Boogie #1 by the Sepia Tones.

Kansas City Boogie
The Blues Man
Juke Box Records 1945

Voo-It! Voo-It!
The Blues Woman (Marian Abernathy)
Juke Box Records 1946
“Kansas City Boogie” and “Voo-It! Voo-It!” were the first big sellers for Juke Box Records.

Milton’s Boogie
Roy Milton & His Solid Senders
Juke Box Records 1946

R.M. Blues
Roy Milton & His Solid Senders
Juke Box Records 1946
Siegel and Rupe really struck gold when they signed Roy Milton. They released records by Milton simultaneously in 1946 and both shot straight up the Billboard and Cash Box R&B Charts. But as more and more of Juke Box’s releases were hitting the charts, there was trouble brewing in the front office. Rupe and Siegel added a new partner, Al Middleman in August of 1945 and my mid-1946, the partnership fell apart leaving Rupe with the label, which he renamed Specialty Records. You can learn more about Specialty Records and Art Rupe by following the links in the resource section below.

Louis Jordan & his Tympany Five
Decca Records 1945
“Caldonia” was #1 on the Billboard R&B Chart for seven weeks and in the Top 5 for
26 weeks. The song was Jordan’s eleventh entry onto the chart and his fifth #1 record.
For tax reasons, “Caldonia” was credited to Felice Moore, Jordan’s wife at the time.


More trivia: In April of 1945 Billboard described Erskin Hawkins’s version of “Caldonia” as “rock and roll.”
It was the first time the term was used in print to describe music.
The usage is a recent discovery, 14 months before the generally accepted first usage of “rock and roll” to describe “Sugar Lump” by Joe Liggins in 1946.

Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson
Mercury Records 1947
Vinson soon went out on his own and in 1947 scored a double-sided hit with “Old Maid Boogie” and “Kidney Stew Blue.” “Kidney Stew” became his signature song.

Gonna Send You Back to Where I Got You From
Van Morrison
The Prophet Speaks 2018
Vinson wrote “Gonna Send You Back Where I Got You”
and release it on on a 78 with “Sales Tax Blues” in 1947.


Cleanhead Blues
Hollywood Fats Band w/ Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson
Road To Rio (date of performance unknown.) 2006
If you’re wondering, Vinson got the nickname “Cleanhead” after he lost his hair
in an accident with a hair straightening product that contained lye.

Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson & Roomful of Blues
Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson & Roomful of Blues 1978

Hold It
Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson with the Cannonball Adderley Quintet

As Vinson developed as an artist, he drew more and more away from jump and R&B and into the world of jazz both as composer and performer, often going toe-to-toe with some of the biggest names in the business.

Thornton’s first charting single, reaching #5 on the
Cash Box Regional R&B Chart for Dallas in March of 1952.

Bad Luck Got My Man
The Harlem Stars featuring Willie May Thornton
E&W Records 1947
After leaving Alabama in 1940, Bessie Smith’s half-sister, Diamond Tooth Mary helped Thornton find work as a singer. During the 1940s, she was often billed as “The New Bessie Smith.” You can hear why in her first record, cut with The Harlem Stars in 1947.

Memphis Minnie
Okeh Records 1941
Thornton idolized Bessie Smith and Memphis Minnie.
Both artists were major influences on her style.

Hound Dog Big

Peacock Records 1952
Although the Lieber & Stoller song made Thornton a household name,
she received none of the profits for what would be her only Billboard R&B hit.

Bear Cat
Rufus Thomas
Sun Records 1953
The success of “Hound Dog” inspired several so-called “answer” songs,
Thomas’s “Bear Cat” was the most successful.

I Smell A Rat
Young Jessie & His Orchestra
Modern Records 1954
Thornton recorded “Rat” as a follow-up to “Hound Dog,” but her version with
the Johnny Otis Band fell flat, as did this equally fine rendition by Young Jessie.

Stop Hoppin’ On Me
Willie Mae Thornton (Big Mama Thornton)
Peacock Records 1954
“Hoppin'” was Thornton’s last charting single,
barely making it onto the Cash Box R&B Charts.

Yes Baby
Big Mama Thornton & Johnny Ace
Peacock Records 1955
Thornton recorded several duets with Johnny Ace. She was there when he
accidentally shot himself to death on Christmas Day 1955.

BIRTHDAY TRIBUTE TO LITTLE RICHARD
(b) Richard Wayne Penniman in Macon, GA on December 5, 1933
After being “discovered” by Sister Rosetta Tharp, Little Richard performed in medicine

and drag shows before moving to gospel and R&G around 1950.
Today’s tribute focuses on how four songs became Little Richard songs.

Tutti Frutti
Little Richard
Specialty Records 1955
SONG ONE:
“Tutti Fruitti” is the song that made Little Richard famous. The story goes that he banged out the original version in all its X-rated glory during a break at a recording session in 1955. The session wasn’t going well and Richard apparently too out his frustrations on the 88. Art Rupe, the president of Specialty Records, liked what he heard and called in songwriter Dorothy LaBostrie to clean up the lyrics.

I Got The Blues For You
Al Collins & His Orchestra
Ace Records 1955

Slippin’ & Slidin’ (Peepin’ & Hidin’)
Little Richard w/ Lee Allen (sax)
Specialty Records 1956
SONG TWO:
“Slippin’ & Slidin'” evolved from “I Got The Blues For You,” a song written and
recorded by Al Collins in 1955.
In early 1956, R&B singer Eddie Bo rewrote the song and released it as “I’m Wise.”
Later that year, LR got his hands on it, changed a few words, and turned it into
a rock’n’roll classic.
The songwriting credits for Little Richard’s version go to Richard Penniman, Al Collins, Eddie Bo, and James Smith.

Johnny Johnny
Johnny Moore’s Three Blazers w/ Mari Jones
Modern Records 1952
SONG THREE:
Little Richard changed “Johnny Johnny” to “Jenny Jenny” and a hit was born.

Keep A Knockin’ An You Can’t Get In
James ”Boodle It” Wiggins
Paramount Records 1928

Keep A Knockin’
Little Richard
Specialty Records 1957
SONG FOUR:
“Keep a Knockin'” was probably written in the 1920s. Sources disagree on the author. It was first recorded by James Wiggins for Paramont Records in 1928.
The first minute of Wiggins’s version is included in this program.
There are numerous other versions including one by Louis Jordan in 1939.
LR’s 1957 version reached #2 on the Billboard R&B chart and #8 on the Pop chart.

PHILO RECORDS: SOME HIGHLIGHTS IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER

Eddie and Leo Messner launched Philo Records in 1945.
The Mesner brothers owned a record store in Los Angeles called the Philharmonic Music Store & shorted the name to Philo for their new label.
When the U.S. Patent Office refused to let them use the name because it was too close to Philco Recording Services, the brothers changed the name to Aladdin Records.
All of the Philo titles were re-released by Aladdin in 1946.
