Swingtime Records
In the fall of 1949, Down Beat Records owner Jack Lauderdale had a problem. Down Beat Magazine was threatening to sue him over the use of the name. Unsure of a new name, Lauderdale decide to use Swing as a placeholder along with Swing Beat Records before finally settling on Swing Time Records in March of 1950. Besides the name, not much changed at the company. Lauderdale continued to release material he had bought up from labels going out of business, such as Supreme Records, Exclusive, Excelsior and Gilt-Edge, while also scoring hits with Lowell Fulson, Ray Charles and his newcomer A&R man, Lloyd Glenn. Fulson and Glenn scored #1 records for Swing Time in 1950 and '51, respectively, but without fostering new talent, Lauderdale's sales were flat and Swing Time went out of business in 1954. This week, Matt The Cat tells the story of Swing Time Records, a label that may have only lasted for a short time, but is still talked about today. So grab some nickels and prepare to drop a stack of shellac on the Swing Time Label.
