The T-A ("Talent Associates") label was started by Steve Binder, who recruited Dennis Lambert to
A&R. They signed Jimmy Seals and Dash Crofts, who made their first two albums for the label before
signed with big-time Warner Bros. Lambert also signed a Canadian group called the Original Caste
the North Country Singers from 1966-69), and co-wrote their big hit "One Tin Soldier." Both the group
lead singer Dixie Lee Innis went on to make several more albums after T-A closed.
The only other artist to have an album on T-A was Lance LeGault, a popular actor on TV and in films. Legault was born in Chicago, but made a name as a "cajun" actor who did stand-ins for Elvis Presley in the early 1960s. He was also a regular on the TV show The A Team.
The T-A label was orange with black print. The logo at the left of the label. Around the bottom of the label was "DIST. BY BELL RECORDS, A DIV. OF COLUMBIA PICTURES INDUSTRIES INC., N.Y.C.".
