  1. Man this is easily my favorite label so far. Crazy stuff thanks
    Trying to figure out why they split the sequence series since both seem to be in the same time line

  2. My Guess is The 1000 series was for the Hillbilly market & the 500 Series for the Teen Pop market. Back then there was 3 seperate music charts (Country Pop & Race records)

  3. After hearing that Freddie Coaster single I've looked everywhere for any info on this guy and I've found nothing. Love to get my hands on a 45 of his.

  4. Back in 1963, I visited the Culver City-based ARLEN Records office.
    I remember it had a sign in the window which read: "Stop-Look-Listen"
    Upon entering, I found label-owner Buddy Jack ( napping on a sofa )
    He was very cordial, showed me a very small ' studio ' at the rear.
    Mister Jack gave me a copy of the Jeff and Shannon's " John F. Kennedy " single, but charged me 50cents! for a small photo of The Dartells (though unidentified) the band members were all sitting/ standing at a life guard station. The master for " Hot Pastrami " had already been leased to Dot Records, but according to Mister Jack, Arlen was " putting out " another Dartells recording.
    The late Tom Ayers produced The Dartells, while Buddy Jack produced most of the output*
    * If an artist or band gave Buddy Jack $400, he would " cut two sides, and press 500 copies " then release your recording on Arlen.
    Those were the days!
