DynoVoice Album Discography
By David Edwards, Mike Callahan and Patrice Eyries
Last update: May 1, 2007

The DynoVoice and NewVoice labels were formed by Bob Crewe in New York City in 1965. A&R on the label was by Crewe himself.

DynoVoice started life as Dyno-Vox, but was changed about the time the fourth single (by Eddie Rambeau) was issued. Rambeau (Edward Flurie) managed to get to #35 nationally with "Concrete and Clay," a cover of a British hit by the Unit 4+2. A few months later, DynoVoice also registered hits with the Toys, a trio from Jamaica, New York (Barbara Harris, Barbara Parritt, and June Monteiro), who made #2 with "A Lover's Concerto" and followed with a top-20 appearance with "Attack." The latter song was in rechanneled stereo on the first pressing of the groups only album [DynoVoice 9002-S], but rare second pressings have the song in true stereo. The two pressings look identical, but the first pressing's matrix number, stamped in the trailoff groove area, ends in "-1A," while the second pressing has a higher number.

Another chart record on DynoVoice was "(When She Wants Good Lovin') She Comes to Me" by the Chicago Loop. The group, based in Chicago, made #37 nationally with the record, but charted higher in their home town. Probably recorded in stereo, the record did not appear on any albums, so has been issued in mono only. In late 1966, "the man himself," Bob Crewe, hit with an instrumental called "Music to Watch Girls By," which reached #15 nationally and spawned an album of the same name. DynoVoice was distributed by Bell Records until late 1967.

Late in 1967, Crewe consolidated the DynoVoice and its companion label, NewVoice, into a new, Dot-distributed DynoVoice, complete with a new logo and completely different look. Both Mitch Ryder and Bob Crewe issued albums on the new DynoVoice, as did the groups Glitterhouse, Good Earth Trio, and Bermuda Jam, but by 1969, Crewe abandoned the DynoVoice name in favor of his own, and started the "Crewe Group of Companies", or CGC, of which the Crewe Label was a part.

The 9000 series DynoVoice label is blue with silver print, with "dynoVoice" in silver above the center hole.

The Dot-distributed DynoVoice 1900/31900 series label is black with silver print, with the title at the bottom of the label. In the middle of the label is the white logo, which is a silhouette of a face turned to the right, with stars trailing to the left. Under the label is "DYNOVOICE" in block letters in yellow.
