Cub Album Discography
By David Edwards, Mike Callahan, Peter Preuss, and Patrice Eyries
Last update: April 23, 2003

Cub was a subsidiary label of MGM. The biggest hit for the label was the Impalas' "Sorry (I Ran All The way Home)", which made #2 in early 1959. Because it was the subsidiary of a major label, recordings were first-rate. The Impalas' album came out in stereo, and is highly sought after as a collectors' item.
