Audio Lab Album Discography
by David Edwards, Mike Callahan and Patrice Eyries
Last update: February 28, 2014

In late 1958, King Records owner Syd Nathan formed a budget subsidiary label called Audio Lab. During the next three years, Audio Lab released a lot of material that had never appeared in album form, including rare albums by Bullmoose Jackson, Annie Laurie, April Stevens, Lattie Moore, Will Penny, the Light Crust Doughboys, Bob Newman, H-Bomb Ferguson, Sticks McGhee and John Lee Hooker.

Back in the 1950s, when the name "Shura" and "piano" were spoken in the same sentence, the name "Shura Cherkassky" lept immediately to mind. Cherkassky was a world-renowned classical pianist. In 1956, King records hired a pop pianist who just went by the name "Shura" (a diminutive for Alexander), who recorded two quick albums for the label. The two albums on Audio Lab by "Shura" are reissues of those King albums, not albums by the more famous Shura Cherkassky.

Another interesting album in this series is the one by Bob Newman, The Kentucky Colonel [AL- 1536]. For years, the television series Hee Haw used a song on the show called "Phfft! You Were Gone", often credited to Buck Owens. Earlier appearances of the song on record attributed writer's credit to Lee Roberts, Susan Heather, or Marian B. Yarneall. Bob Newman's son Bob Jr. recently wrote to us to untangle the mystery of authorship of this classic. It was first recorded by Bob Newman July 3, 1952, at King Studios in Cincinnati. It was released on King 45-1131 shortly thereafter, with writer credits to Lee Roberts. Bob Newman actually wrote the song under the name Lee Roberts, which was his usual pen name (he had over 80 songwriting credits for both ASCAP and BMI under that name), and was the first to record it. Newman sold the song to Bix Reichner in 1958. Reichner, who wrote many songs including "Papa Loves Mambo" for Perry Como and "I Need Your Love Tonight" for Elvis Presley, assigned the song to his wife's name — Marian B. Yarneall, aka Susan Heather. By the time the Audio Lab album came out in 1959, the writer credit had changed to Susan Heather. The original version of the song made its first (only?) LP appearance on his Audio Lab album.

Late in 1959, Audio Lab announced that they would be starting a 1600 series, a stereo-only series that would begin with an album by Eddie Davis and Charlie Ventura. Although the album was announced, it was apparently not released, and instead released as King KSD-1601. There were no more issues in the 1600 series of which we are aware.

The Audio Label label was blue with silver printing (far left), with "AUDIO LAB" in silver curving around the label above the center hole. On the left side of the label is 33 1/3 and on the other side is HI-FI. At the bottom of the label is "PRODUCT OF KING RECORDS". Almost all the albums were issued in mono only, but at least two albums were issued in stereo with a red label and silver print with the same graphics (near left).

AL-1541 - Organ Melodies - Billy Mayson [1960] The single shown here is Mayson's first release, "Billy Jean Boogie"/"After Hours", released July 25, 1955, on King 1491. The King promotional copies were known for having a writeup on the artist on the promo label. This single's writeup is: "Organist-pianist Billy Mayson was born in Memphis, Tennessee. His father was a talented musician, played a dozen or more instruments, and also taught them. His dad taught Billy and encouraged him to play. He made his professional debut in Cleveland, Ohio, when he was seventeen years old. With this first recording by Mayson, we predict the public will immediately accept him as a top drawer artist.//Although Billy Mayson was taught to play the classics by his father, he soon learned that in order to make a living he would have to turn to some other form of music. His talented fingers on both the piano and organ led him to the jazz field where he was an immediate success. Especially popular with the teen-agers, Billy's music appeals to people of all ages and musical tastes." It apparently was the only single King issued by Mayson.
