Rockabilly Gems from Mobile's Sandy Record Label

Sandy Records was an independent rock and roll record label established in Mobile, Alabama by Paul DuBose and Johnny Bozeman in early 1957. It launched the careers of many artists such as Ray Sawyer, lead vocalist of Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show. "Tell Him No" by Travis and Bob became the label's first hit record in 1959.   Many of the songs released on Sandy and its subsidiary, Orange, have become sought after by collectors and reissued on anthologies. Here are a couple of my favorites for your listening pleasure.

Here's Wild, Wild Party by Darryl Vincent released in 1959.

Rockin' In The Graveyard by Jackie Morningstar AKA Jackie Morrell, released in 1959.
