Scepter Wand Forever! by Stephen Guarnori
Tracing the history of Scepter Records and its subsidiary labels. The story details the growth of Scepter in the 1960s in New York with signings like Dionne Warwick and B J Thomas and a host of others, through the early days of disco music in the 1970s, and to the company's eventual demise in 1976. This book features the stories of the artists, and the people involved in the company.
Scepters success with acts like The Shirelles, Dionne Warwick, B J Thomas, B T Express, The Kingsmen, The Guess Who etc. and others was mirrored by many more non sellers and flops. This book explores both the hits and the misses, the labels that were distributed by Scepter, the artists, and the company’s story. Including comments from many of the people involved with the label over its existence. Loads on the soul side of things, as you'd expect!
