My collection is probably 95% USA releases, from all sorts of genres. I hope to fill in a few gaps as I work my way though it all.

Sonny Charles And The Checkmates Ltd.

A: Black Pearl
B: Lazy Susan
I have two Monarch copies of this, both with "A&M 1701-15" in the b-side runout:
- One credits "Sonny Charles" (similar to images 441112, 441113) and has these deltas: Δ75576 / Δ13230
- The other credits "Sonny Charles & The Checkmates, Ltd." (see images 357959, 357960), and the b-side has Δ75576-X scratched directly over the 'wrong' number.
Perhaps another case of an LP delta wandering into the 45rpm department...

A: A Good Woman
B: It's Impossible To Describe Our Love
A pity that we don't have any scans of a Renegade stock release as yet, as it's a nice colorful label.

Bob Wood

A: Gonna Look Down
B: Hold Back The Night
Not to be confused with Memphis pianist Bobby Wood, this Bob Wood is a guitar player. He and this record are mentioned in the Morgantown WV Dominion News (Apr 11, 1970) and the Frederick MD News (May 22, 1971).

Rudy Grey

A: You Were My First Affair
B: Sugar Let's Dance Tonight
Not sure what to make of this one. First of all, this seems to be a different Talent label, but from where? I see that ARLD lists a separate Talent label with one entry: 252, dated 2/59, with no additional info.
Also, in Go Cat Go!: Rockabilly Music and Its Makers by Craig Morrison, there is a page which mentions that Rudy Grayzell recorded something as "Rudy Grey" for a Talent label. But this doesn't sound much like Grayzell to me; more like low-budget teen-pop in the Bobby Rydell vein.

[edit] A bit more: found a July 21, 1953 copyright for You Were My First Affair by Norman Davis (pseudonym for Christopher Norman Lucas).
