Know anything about the label at all, Bob? 

 

Got a copy of the brilliant Johnny D 45 about 25 years ago and wondered back then if the label might have some connection to the General Motors Corporation.

I doubt that very much.  If General Motors started a record division, it would have had a much longer run and many more records issued, and many LPs issued.  It would have been more like RCA, Columbia, Decca, -or, at least, like a secondary sub-major label, like 20th Century Fox or Colpix.   A label owned by General Motors would have had a giant payroll and budget just to get started.  They would have gone at least 5 years, and had over 100 releases.  This 15 45RPM releases over a couple-year period seems more like a tiny independent like "Go Go Music".

I agree entirely. It seemed like a nice thought though, that a company with a deep reliance on the Afro-American community might get involved in a sideline such as a record label. Running with the idea in my head, I also wondered - if it was run by General Motors - if the acts might have been plucked from the corporation's own productions lines and factory floors. As I say, a small flight of fancy at the time and one which quite appealed to me.
