Contour issued another five 45's after this release, all under a "500" series. Willie Hamilton, Knight Hawks, Dave Atkins and the Minor chords, Pauline Cooper all flopped. From Detroit

It was one of Robert West's many small Detroit labels. He also operated Flick and Bumble Bee Records in 1958-59. The Majestics (well known Detroit group led by Johnny Mitchell) and The Playboys (AKA Fabulous Playboys) and Professor Hamilton (Bob Hamilton AKA Rob Reeco) also recorded for that label. Both Willie Hamilton's cuts were published by Jobete Music. I wonder what connection he had with Berry Gordy and Motown?

All lu pine subs rob, and berry gordy wrote some of the published songs. Have about six 45s on contour. All fantastic early detroit!

I beg to differ, here. Contour was a contemporary of Flick and Bumble Bee in 1958-59. It's last release (Professor Hamilton) was concurrent with LuPine. But Lupine didn't exist when Contour started. Flick Records was West's main label at that time. Bumble Bee had finished it's run before LuPine was started.

Subs wasnt the right expression...of course contour and flick pre-dated lupine. What - wanted to say is they all were part of robert wests small soul empire that planted the seed for what was to come in detroit from 1958 omwards..
