Specialty Records Pt. 1
This week, the “Juke In The Back” is full of old records from one of the greatest record labels of all-time, Specialty Records. Art Rupe started the label in 1944 as Juke Box Records. Part 1 of this multi-part feature will focus on Specialty’s early years, featuring not only the enormous hits from Roy Milton & His Solid Senders, Jimmy Liggins, Camille Howard and Joe Liggins, but also the lesser known releases by The Sepia Tones, The Blues Woman, Big Maceo and more. Find out how this great label began on this week’s “Juke In The Back” with Matt The Cat.
