Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I found last year these 2 Cornell Blakely's records on a strange South Carolina based MABLE label.

Both came out first on Detroit RICH label

Any infos on this label?

Me thinks it's a late 60's or 70's reissue label for beach music scene demand...but maybe I'm wrong

Any help welcome

Thank you

Romain

These have to be '70s re-issues by just James Hendrix (probably without his partner, Berry Gordy's knowledge, due to its meagre sales (probably just in The Carolinas and Georgia, or, possibly across the South)), just as the Cornell Blakely on Shenita records was.  Both of those Hendrix re-issue labels operated out of South Carolina, where Hendrix had moved in the early '70s, after leaving Detroit and Tennessee.

I'd say that the Mable records look like around 1977-79.  I believe Hendrix was already in South Carolina in the early '70s, based on some later Carrie pressings I've seen with a SC address.  And, I was told that the Shenita release (also with a SC address), came out in 1973.

Actually, "Don't Do It"/"You Broke My Heart", although Detroit-produced (and recorded at Motown's studios), wasn't on DETROIT'S Rich label.  It was on Nashville DJ, John Richbourg's label, located in Nashville, Tennessee (despite Blakely's Detroit-based manager, James Hendrix and Motown's Berry Gordy being the owners of the product).  That was Richbourg's Rich's last release.  After Rich went bust, for whatever reason, Gordy and Hendrix released "I've Got That Feeling"/"I Want My Share" on a "new", Motown pressed, Rich Records (which WAS a Detroit label-in ALL ways).

Mable was an SC label (Laurens county). At least some of the releases were recorded at Mark V studios (famous for all sorts). Not much soul / R&b at all on Mable. Cornell was likely from Laurens; he definately lived there after performing to do radio. Seen about 3-4 different label designs, some look early, some very late (as RobbK says).
