 Thanks mickey rat. Another unsolved mystery. Yes, perhaps they wanted just the name.

We need perhaps a special space on 45cat for all these unsolved questions ?

 Various secondary sources on the internet say Trey was sold to Hazlewood & Sill by Eddie Shuler but whether they're all perpetuating the same myth I don't know. Billboard Oct 12 1959 reports Atlantic's new Trey label but no mention of purchasing the name. However Galen Gart's ARLD says "...Goldband subsidiary ... was subsequently sold to Atlantic Records." ARLD certainly has the odd error, but GG trawled his information from the trades of the day: Cashbox and Billboard, so I'm guessing maybe there was a snippet in one of those publications. I've also heard about this particular Louisiana Purchase elsewhere in the past but buggered if I can remember where.

 Yes I see BSNpubs.com say it's unrelated too, and obviously it's a totally different label, but I've had it in my head for many years that Atlantic had to buy the rights to the name from Eddie Shuler who then discontinued his Trey label. Perhaps I imagined this.

 mickey rat : Sometime after this Trey was bought from Shuler for some reason by Atlantic and ended up with Lee Hazlewood and Lester Sill (and later Phil Spector involvement). It was effectively a totally different label. Did Atlantic just want the name?

The Hazelwood-Sill/Atlantic Trey label is unrelated

 Original issue on one of Eddie Shuler's little Lake Charles, Louisiana labels. Primitive, rock & roll/swamp pop with a Tex-Mex rhythm and a tenor sax break. Flip is a guitar and sax instrumental heavily influenced by people like Link Wray, with vocal interjections. Johnny Duhon was the band’s guitarist. Sometime after this Trey was bought from Shuler for some reason by Atlantic and ended up with Lee Hazlewood and Lester Sill (and later Phil Spector involvement). It was effectively a totally different label. Did Atlantic just want the name?
