Product Description

(4-CD LP-sized box with book) Joe Leonard's Lin Records of Gainesville, Texas arrived relatively late among the independent labels that began the years following World War II, and it was not especially prolific, but it and its Kliff subsidiary produced a number of excellent and enduring records during a fourteen year existence (1954-1968). Lin enjoyed one national hit, Ken Copeland's Pledge Of Love in 1957, and Leonard placed a number of masters with larger labels like MGM, Imperial and Dot, while covering a wide spectrum of styles, including honky-tonk, western swing, rockabilly, rock and roll, doo wop, rhythm and blues and pop.

Joe Leonard combined business acumen and strong promotional skills with a good ear for talent and an astute willingness not only to adapt to changing tastes, but also to take an occasional chance. Bear Family has previously chronicled Lin's most prolific and important artists, Buck Griffin and Andy Starr and this 4-CD set contains representative examples of their best work, along with well over a hundred recordings by other Lin artists, both important and obscure, like Jerry Fuller, Ray Ruff, David Ray, Ken Copeland, The Strikes, The Four Mints, J.B. Brinkley, and many others. It contains single discs devoted to Lin's country and pop recordings, as well as two discs exploring rockabilly, rock 'n' roll and all points in between.
