Jetstar Discography
By Mike Callahan, Dave Edwards, and Patrice Eyries
Last update: April 28, 2007

Dallas, Texas-based Jetstar Records was part of Abnak Music Enterprises, Inc., founded by successful Fort Worth insurance man John H. Abdnor, Sr. It turned out to be mainly a vehicle for soul singer Bobby Patterson, whose singles made up the bulk of the label's output. Of collectors' interest are the two early singles by the Five Americans, who eventually hit it big with the parent Abnak label, and the two singles by bluesman Arthur Adams, who was recording as Arthur K. Adams in those days.

The Jetstar masters were sold to Sundazed Music as part of the Abnak sale in the late 1990s. We know of no albums issued on Jetstar, but Sundazed Music has issued a 2-CD collection of Bobby Patterson's best.

The Jetstar label was red on top and white on the bottom, with "JETSTAR RECORDS" in grey on the red field. Around the bottom of the label it reads, "A PRODUCT OF ABNAK MUSIC ENTERPRISES, INC." Promotional copies were typically on colored vinyl, like their Abnak counterparts. Actually, as a whole there are a lot more Jetstar singles around on colored vinyl than black vinyl, due to many of them selling poorly commercially.
