From the Land of Band Box Records

Band Box Singles (45 RPM & 78 RPM) – Subsidiary Labels

The following is a complete listing of all known Band Box 45’s with year of release or month and year when known.  The dates are best estimates. This list is in the process of undergoing a edit based on comprehensive information supplied by Colorado’s George “Doc” Krieger – Chief Researcher for the Colorado Music Hall of Fame. He has provided extensive edits and additions to the total Band Box discography. My thanks to him and his continued efforts. Please visit the Colorado Music Hall of Fame web site! The earliest Band Box releases were probably from the year 1958.

Band Box Subsidiaries

The Band Box subsidiary labels included Valerie, Keyboard, Rustique and Spicy. Valerie seemed to parallel Band Box with some rock and roll and some country. Keyboard seemed to be reserved for lounge, gospel and the like, Rustique country and Spicy for bawdy comedy LP’s.
