Colt 45's and Jerry Records - Help please ?

Recommended Posts

Firstly, apologies if this has been covered before and please direct me to any previous threads

I would like to know anything about the 2 (or more) singles (which appear to be Philly related) and artist and writers please as I cannot find much on the Web

It appears that labels were reversed (I don't know if on all or some)

I don't think the label was owned by Ben Lee, but the record was definitely produced by them. I spoke to Frank Bendinelli briefly about this record, and from what I remember he said that "Jerry" went off and did his own thing with the tunes, putting it out on his own label - I can only presume that Jerry was the driving force and probably lead singer/founder of Colt 45's and probably the G. Billups (Gerald Billups?) on the credits. I'm only guessing here, will try and confirm some of this. I also think it's unlikely that this has anything to do with Steve Colt - I don't think he was a Philly guy? Glad to be put right on any of the above

Then I presume Jerry of Jerry and Willa, probably G. Billups as you suggest.
