M.C. Album Discography
By David Edwards and Mike Callahan
Last update: August 7, 2012

Ad from Billboard Magazine, 3/18/78, for MC singles The MC ("Motown Country") label was owned by Mike Curb and Berry Gordy, and distributed by Motown. It was a follow-on label to Melodyland/Hitsville (which Mike Curb headed), but when Curb bought half the label, they changed the name from Hitsville to MC. It only lasted short time, from September,1977, when they released their first single, to August, 1978, when they released their last. MC had a few country singles on the charts, but the album side never seemed to really get off the ground.

Their first success was Wendel Adkins' "Julieanne (Where Are You Tonight?) [MC 5002], which hit the charts in October, 1977, reaching #95. Jerry Naylor's single, "If You Don't Want to Love Her" [MC 5004] did considerably better, charting in February, 1978, and reaching #37. About the same time, MC offered a country version of a Stevie Wonder song, and Marty Mitchell took "You Are the Sunshine of My Life" [MC 5005] to #34. Finally, Jerry Naylor returned in May, 1978, with a two-sided charter, the old Buddy Holly tune "Rave On" coupled with "Lady Would You Like To Dance" [MC 5010] which reached #80.

Besides the artists who had albums for the label, artists with non-charting singles included Marty Cooper (formerly the artist sometimes known as El Clod), Ernie Payne, E.D. Wofford, Kay Austin, and Arthur Blanch.

Most of the albums seem to have been unissued commercially, as they are all but nonexistent today. But there was artwork done for most of the albums and at least promos pressed for all. We have actually found physical albums for all of the numbers, but most of these have white labels and clipped corners. They look like promos but don't say so, and we are assuming they are promos because the Doug Momary album, which is obviously a promo, has the same label. In any case, most MC albums in this discography are very hard to come by today. We are sure that 501, 511, and 515 were commercially released (and they are the only ones with color on the covers), but for the others, they may not have been issued except as promos (and we call them promos in the discography below).

The commercial MC label is creme colored with a light burlap pattern, with brown printing (far left), with "MC RECORDS" on two lines above the center hole. Most of the albums we have found have a white label with black print (near left). These may be promos but they are not marked as such.
Commercial singles are creme color with brown print (far left). Singles were issued in the UK with the typical 45 insert. UK promos (near left) had a promo overprint on the insert. Both have the light burlap pattern.
