Astronaut Label , Detroit

Recommended Posts

Guest

I recently obtained a copy of " She's Mine " / " Hurt " by The Tears , on the Astronaut label ......

Astronaut is again , another label that I have not seen before .....

Was " She's Mine " - label number 5001 - the only release on this label , or were there others ?

Over to you .....

Not seen any other releases on the label, so would assume it's the only release.

Reliable group vocal sources date the Tears record at 1961. But beware of boots which were put out for the doo-wop market - they have a bevelled edge and are quite lightweight.

It's the only record I've had on the label, if I remember right isn't it yellow and wasn't Gino Washington in the group?? Is he credited..?? I sold acopy some time ago for £75.

Good morning , Obi Wan ......

Correct ; the label is yellow , and Gino Washington is credited as one of the writers , along with

O.George and G.Garrett .....

Not a boot , and a nice result , as it was nowhere near £75 that I paid for it ; but you would expect that of a Yorkshireman wouldn't you , John .....

Hi Malc

Don't think it's the same Astronaut label but there is a 45 by the wonderfully named Stormy Brooks & Escapades called Doris on Astronaut 116 doo wop record

Agreed ., a wonderful name ......

Sounds like a group who would have played the working men's club in t'north in the 60s ....

You can just picture the scene .....

" Now Ladies and Gentlemen , we have a turn for your pleasure this evening , who are going to sing their gramophone record " Doris " for us ..... "

Same writing team as " She's Mine " / " Hurt " .......

Label design very similar , but no release number as with the above disc ......

Can we presume this to be another release on Astronaut ? .....
