VINYL CLASSICS - GODFREY PRESENTS

Godfrey Kerr was a Los Angeles disc jockey and record producer and entrepreneur. He started the Gee Kay, Kay Gee and Flashback record labels. See my post THE EASTSIDE SOUND HITS THE RADIO WAVES - GODFREY KERR.

In 1965 Godfrey released four record albums entitled GODFREY PRESENTS: courtesy of local record companies in Los Angeles. The albums feature a mix of Mexican-American recording artists and black R&B artists. The albums are ala Art Laboe's OLDIES BUT GOODIES series

In 1968 I bought two of his albums at Sounds Of Music, a record store in East Los Angeles to play on my radio show at East Los Angeles College. I now have all four albums to complete this post.
