Abnak Album Discography
By Mike Callahan, Dave Edwards, and Patrice Eyries
Last update: January 7, 2012

Jon & Robin Dallas, Texas-based Abnak Records was part of Abnak Music Enterprises, Inc., founded by successful Fort Worth insurance man John H. Abdnor, Sr. His son, John Howard Abdnor, Jr., otherwise known as Jon Abnor, was a part of the duo Jon & Robin. The elder Abdnor apparently started the label as a vehicle for his son's musical interests, but quickly also became involved on the business end when he signed the Five Americans and he became their personal manager. Abnak Music Enterprises included the Abnak and Jetstar labels.

Jon Abnor put out several records on the Abnak label in 1963 and 1964. Although they got a bit of airplay in Dallas, they didn't chart nationally. Meanwhile, he spent his time running the day-to-day operations of his father's record label. In 1965, after an unsuccessful attempt to go to a national audience by releasing a single on Atco, Jon was paired with female vocalist Javonne Braga as the duo Jon & Robin. (Javonne was called Robin because she was a replacement for the first singer, Robin Beavers, who quit before the duo started recording.) As it turned out, the duet proved to be a better arrangement for Jon's success, with several chart records nationally. Their first hit was "Do It Again A Little Bit Slower" [Abnak 119], which reached the national top-20 in late spring, 1967. This and several followup singles were billed as "Jon & Robin & the In Crowd."

Jon & the In Crowd 45 Jon & Robin's followup singles, however, hovered around the bottom of the top 100, as they couldn't repeat their national success (although the records sold well in Dallas and the Southwest). By 1968, with the release of their album Elastic Event, Jon & Robin are pictured on the cover looking positively dour, and each tried a solo effort about this time. Jon's single ["Save Me, Save Me," Abnak 133] was cryptically credited to "Jon & the In Crowd," the label looking every bit as if Robin's name were airbrushed out. (In fact, the flip side had earlier been released as by Jon & Robin.) It stiffed. Javonne "Robin" Braga's solo single was also without much success ["Dirty Old Man" as "Robin (of Jon & Robin)" on Abnak 136, with the flip another Jon & Robin song]. The duo got back together, sans the In Crowd, for a few more singles stretching to the late summer of 1969 before breaking up for good. Javonne Braga married Five Americans drummer Jimmy Wright in 1970. Jon Abnor put together a new group in 1969 called the John Howard Abdnor Involvement, which released three singles and an LP to little notice. Jon went through a series of personal and legal crises in the 1970s that took him out of the music business. He died July 2, 2008, in Dallas.

In Crowd 45 The "In Crowd" was not the same group who hit with "Questions and Answers" on Viva in 1966. Instead, it was Bobby Rambo (guitar, percussion), Jim Glaves (keyboards), Pete Molino (guitar), James Anderson (bass), and Rex Ludwick (drums). Actually, the group sounded a lot like the Five Americans. The first single they put out as a solo venture was a Five Americans song, "Big Cities" [Abnak 121], which also appeared on the Americans' Western Union LP. The single version by the In Crowd is not the same recording as the Five Americans version on their LP, but except for a slightly different arrangement, it sounds close enough to have been recorded at a Five Americans' session. Group members (as well as the Five Americans, who wrote it) hoped the single would be a big hit, due to the large number of cities named, but actually, it missed the national charts altogether. In my opinion, the 45 version released by the In Crowd was not as good as the Five Americans LP cut, but it was a bit more "radio-friendly". By 1968, when the second Jon & Robin album was recorded, the In Crowd was down to just Rambo and Glaves, with three members of the Five Americans (John Durill, Jim Grant, and Jimmy Wright) filling in, and Five Americans frontman Mike Rabon doing the production. The In Crowd's next single, "Hangin' from Your Lovin' Tree" [Abnak 129] managed to make an anemic #131 nationally. At this point, mid-1968, except for the "Jon & the In Crowd" 45 mentioned above, the In Crowd was history. Bobby Rambo would join the Five Americans formally in 1969.

The Five Americans (left to right):
Jim Grant, Norm Ezell, John Durrill, Jim Wright, Mike Rabon. The most successful act for the Abnak label was the Five Americans. The group had started as a predominantly instrumental college band in 1962. They called themselves the Mutineers, based at Southeastern Oklahoma State University in Durant, Oklahoma. Originally, the group included Mike Rabon (vocals/guitar), Norm Ezell (vocals/guitar), John Durill (vocals/keyboard), Jim Grant (bass), and Johnny Coble (drums). Like many bands of the time, they played at frat parties and occasional gigs at bars, covering the popular surfing/Duane Eddy instrumental hits along with other dance numbers. In late 1963, Mike Rabon's father ponied up some cash for them to cut a single at Seller's Recording Studio in Dallas (about 90 miles south of Durant). A thousand copies of the record (two original instrumentals) were pressed for sales at their gigs, but they had bigger plans, bringing the 45 to Oklahoma City to try to get it on the radio. While there, they didn't get any takers for the radio, but they became aware of the Beatles for the first time. This changed their style (both music and wardrobe) from surf to British Invasion fairly quickly.

Five Americans Poster After the school year ended in May, 1964, the group planned to head for a bigger venue to make their fame and fortune instead of getting summer jobs. They decided to move down to Dallas for the summer, but Coble chose not to go. They invited Jimmy Wright, a high-school aged drummer with another local band, the Accents, and he jumped at the opportunity. The new lineup rehearsed for two weeks at Mike Rabon's parents' house, then headed the hour-and-a-half south to Dallas.

The Mutineers quickly found jobs in the Dallas club scene, first at the 4500 Club, then the Pirate's Nook, and later at Louann's, one of the best known clubs in Dallas. It was there they again started writing some original tunes rather than just do covers of Beatles' and other artists' songs. By late June, 1964, they recorded a few demos of their material at a local studio, and brought them to KLIF deejay Ken Dowe for his advice. Dowe told them to go see the folks at Abnak. After listening to the demos, Jon Abnor brought them in for an audition, then offered them a contract. Abnor's father, John Abdnor, Sr., became their manager. The A&R man for Abnak, Roger Guegenheimer, suggested a name change that everyone liked. By July, 1964, they were the Five Americans.

Jetstar 105 In September, 1964, Abdnor sent the group to Sumet Recording Studios in Dallas, where they recorded "It's You Girl" and "I'm Gonna Leave Ya." At first, Abdnor placed the group on its Jetstar label, used mainly for R&B records, and released the two songs as Jetstar 104. The Five Americans went back to Sumet several additional times, and in December, 1964, they recorded the original "I'm Feelin' O.K." and the Little Richard cover "Slippin' and Slidin." Abdnor put out the single on Jetstar 105. Neither of the Jetstar singles clicked, even in Dallas, so Abdnor decided to put the Five Americans on the Abnak label rather than Jetstar from that point on.

In the spring of 1965, Abdnor issued one more single by the group taken from the Sumet sessions, a couple of songs recorded in October, 1964, but unreleased up to that point. He issued the decidedly Beatlesque "Say That You Love Me" backed with "Without You," as Abnak 106. Still nothing. Feeling that they were getting nowhere, Abdnor sent the group to Nashville to record a couple of songs he licensed to ABC-Paramount, "Show Me" backed with "Love Love Love" [ABC-Paramount 10686]. The record received little promotion, and predictably, sank without a trace after its release in late June. At about the same time, a Jon Abnor single was similarly placed with Atco, with exactly the same result.

HBR 454 Discouraged, the band launched into a period of practicing eight hours a day for months in an attempt to get better. They were also introduced to recording engineer Robin Hood Brians, who had hand-built a recording studio in his home in Tyler, Texas, a hundred miles or so east of Dallas. During one lengthy session in late 1965, the Five Americans laid down ten songs, with Dale Hawkins producing. Again they brought the tapes to KLIF deejay Ken Dowe for his opinion. Dowe was lukewarm about most of the songs, but when he heard "I See the Light," he knew it was a hit. Abnak released the song in late 1965, backed with the slow, depressing "The Outcast" on the flip, as Abnak 109. It took off immediately in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, making so much noise that HBR Records (Hanna-Barbera Records, the Hollywood label whose parent company gave us Huckleberry Hound and Yogi Bear) called and offered to pick it up for national distribution. On HBR 454, it hit the national charts in January, 1966, eventually reaching #26. In the rush to re-release the record on HBR, the flip side was misspelled as "The Outcasts".

The group was immediately shipped to Los Angeles to finish an album and record a followup single. The followup, "Evol-Not Love," a stomping rocker with a march tempo and a nasty put-down lyric, was issued in March as HBR 468, backed with a cut from the album, "Don't Blame Me." Although the song only reached #52 nationally, in certain cities it was a huge hit, for example making #8 in Chicago, even edging out their hit "Western Union" (#10) as their highest all-time charter in that city.

Five Americans, early 1967 Back in Texas, John Abdnor was quickly figuring out that his own Abnak label, though unprepared for national distribution a few months earlier when "I See the Light" hit, could do national distribution as well as the next guy (at least, if that next guy was HBR). To finish the contract requirements, the Five Americans recorded "Good Times" at Robin Hood Brians' studio, which HBR released as HBR 483, backed with another track from the HBR album, "The Losing Game." This time, the single failed to chart at all, but that was not surprising due to lack of promotion on a lame-duck act for a label that was itself going down the tubes.

Abnak 116 promo Meanwhile, the Five Americans were busy with Dale Hawkins in Robin Hood Brians' studio, recording tracks for singles. By this time, the band had begun to sound really polished, and their songwriting had improved substantially. In the fall of 1966, they issued the single "Reality"/"Sympathy" on Abnak 114, then later in the year "If I Could"/"Now That It's Over" on Abnak 116. Although neither single charted nationally, all four of these songs would later show up on their first Abnak album, Western Union [Abnak 1967/2067], arguably their best album ever. The deejay copy of Abnak 116, shown at right, was typical of Abnak's promotional practice of issuing deejay copies on colored vinyl. Although that had been a practice in the 1950s, by the mid-1960s it was all but dead, and the colorful Abnak 45s were eye catching for program directors and deejays.

In January, 1967, the group recorded and released their biggest hit ever, the Dale-Hawkins-produced "Western Union" [Abnak 118], which reached #5 nationally. They churned out two more quick top-40 hits with "Sound of Love" [Abnak 120, #36] and "Zip Code" [Abnak 123, #36], both also produced by Dale Hawkins and recorded at Robin Hood Brians' studio. A second Abnak album, Progressions [Abnak 2069] was issued late in 1967. But as I can well recall from being in a rock band at the time, it was not "cool" to be a top-40 (i.e., bubblegum) band, with FM album bands like the Doors, Cream, and the like now on the scene. The next two singles, "Stop-Light" [Abnak 125] and "7:30 Guided Tour" [Abnak 126] both were steps toward an edgier sound, but the public wasn't buying (literally), as they stalled at #132 and #96, respectively. The next three singles, issued in 1968, didn't chart at all.

1969 lineup of the Five Americans Frustrated with differences among the group as to musical "direction," two of the members of the band, John Durrill and Norm Ezell, decided in early 1969 to head for California and record as a duo. Dale Hawkins also found other things to do. The remaining group members brought in Lenny Goldsmith to replace Durrill and Bobby Rambo to replace Ezell, and changed the name of the group to "Michael Rabon & the Five Americans." A third Abnak album, Now and Then [Abnak 2071] was a two-LP set consisting of one disc of the material the original group had put together ("Then"), and another with the new lineup ("Now"). A single that was started with the original lineup and finished later was "Virginia Girl" [Abnak 134], released in early 1969 credited to "Michael Rabon & the Five Americans," which reached #133. As far as chart hits, the Five Americans were finished.

In fact, Abnak was almost finished, too. Only one of the later Abnak singles charted until the label went inactive in 1971: Errol Sober's "What Do You Say To A Naked Lady" [Abnak 148], which reached #106 in May, 1970. Sober was a California-based singer who later had two more minor chart singles for other labels.

Choctaw, 1971: Jim Wright (left) and Mike Rabon As for the Five Americans, they disbanded in 1970. Michael Rabon and Jim Wright formed the band Choctaw (see photo at left), a country band going back to their Oklahoma roots, but their one album on Universal City (UNI) Records did not sell well. Rabon and John Durrill recorded some demos together in the 1970s, but nothing came of it. Rabon released a solo album in 1975, with Jim Grant on bass, but it, too, flopped. Rabon eventually became a school administrator in Oklahoma. As of the late 1980s, Jim Wright was working as a commercial photographer for a television station in Dennison, Texas, about an hour north of Dallas. He and his wife Javonne lived in Durant, Oklahoma, just across the Texas-Oklahoma border.

John Durrill, 1967 John Durrill told Ben McLane in a 1998 interview, "I left the group in late 68/69 and came to Los Angeles with Norman. Before I left Texas we recorded demos with Robin Hood of some of Norman and my songs. No one in Los Angeles was interested in those songs. I was living in a one bedroom apartment in Hollywood that Norman and I shared and was selling dental equipment. I was desperate. As luck would have it, I had met singer Vic Dana (of "Red Roses For A Blue Lady" fame) and told him of my plight. He told me to call Bobby Vee. By coincidence, I had already met Vee while I was on tour with the Five Americans. I asked Vee if he knew of any bands that needed a keyboard player. Vee thought the Ventures did and got me an audition with them. I was hired to play with the Ventures in 1969 for $150 a week, right after they had a worldwide hit with the "Hawaii Five-O" theme. I immediately went to Japan for a Ventures tour. I recorded at least seven or eight albums with the Ventures and toured the world." Durrill eventually worked with Snuff Garrett, and wrote several songs for other artists, including Cher's #1 hit "Dark Lady" [MCA 40161] in 1974. He also recorded an album in 1978 called Just for the Record [UA 824].

Norm Ezell, 1967 Norman Ezell became a born-again Christian in 1975 and worked in the Christian ministry for decades. He was involved in some Christian music projects in Nashville in the 1980s, when he and his wife were the prison outreach directors at Faith Is The Victory Church in Nashville. He continued to write and perform Christian music as part of his Gloryland Ministries in Lodi, California, until his death on May 8, 2010.

Jim Grant, 1967 Bassist Jim Grant became a graphic artist in the Dallas area after the group broke up. This was a natural for him - he had designed the covers for the Five Americans albums and was always interested in art. Jim continued playing bass in addition to his professional career. Sadly, he passed away in December, 2004.

The Five Americans had a 20 year reunion concert at the Hard Rock Café in Dallas in 1988, and a "homecoming" concert in March, 2003, at Southeastern Oklahoma State University.

Besides Jon & Robin, the In Crowd, and the Five Americans, Abnak had very few other artists. Most had only a single record released on the label. Over the nine years from 1963 to 1971, the additional artists on the label were limited to Maria Strattin, the Ripples, Rex Miller, Jimmy Velvet, Dale Hawkins (also a producer for Abnak), Guckenheimer (who was possibly Abnak's A&R man Roger Guegenheimer), the Everyday People, Billy Sans, Justus Tarmar, and Bobby Patterson, who had many singles on Jetstar and finally charted one in 1969 with "T.C.B. or T.Y.A." [Jetstar 114, #36R&B, 4/69]. Patterson was also used as a backing vocalist for other Abnak records.

John Abdnor, Senior, sold the Abnak/Jetstar masters to Bob Irwin of Sundazed Music in the late 1990s. John H. Abdnor, Sr., died in Dallas July 24, 1999. As Bob Irwin told me in 2000, before his death Abdnor told Irwin that he wanted to sell the masters to someone who would care for them the way he had all these years. Judging from the wonderful sound of the Sundazed CD reissues, that apparently was very well, indeed.

The Abnak label was yellow with a black area at the top of the label starting just above the center hole. The yellow Abnak logo was in the black field, along with the title and artist of the album in yellow under the logo. Printing in the yellow area was black. At the bottom of the label, the following words bend around the label edge: "A PRODUCT OF ABNAK MUSIC ENTERPRISES, INC." Promotional copies (near left) had the same label, but were overprinted with "D.J. Copy" to the left of the center hole and "Not For Sale" to the right.
