Palomar Album Discography
By David Edwards, Patrice Eyries, Mike Callahan, Randy Watts and Tim Neely
Last update: June 18, 2012

Palomar was a label owned by Salvadore "Tutti" Camarata. It was formed in 1963 and lasted until 1965. They started with two singles in 1963 and issued about 15 singles altogether by 1965. Their album output was limited to three LPs issued in 1965, after they signed a distribution deal with London Records in March of that year. Camarata also owned the London-distributed Coliseum label.

Artists on Palomar included Wade & Jamie, Don Randi, Marvin Jenkins, the Jon/Paul Twins, Jerry Styner, Kelly Garrett, Lance LeGault, Jimmy Westerfield, Jack Bedient & the Chessmen, Curtis Amy, and Billy Page. They had no chart hits.

Both the Palomar album label (far right) and the singles label (near right) featured a black-and-white swirl background with an orange disc at the right, presumably a stylized comet seen at the Palomar Observatory. The labels had gold print. The promotional singles label used the orange London promotional label.
