Harold Lipsius

Jamie Records was founded based in Philadelphia by Harold Lipsius in 1957 and Allan Sussel.  Lipsius would to on later to partner with Phil Spector distributing his Philles label.  Initially the combined Jamie/Guyden record company was distributed by Gone/End records.

Guyden released it’s initial single in 1954 “Let Me Go Lover” by Carmen Taylor.  Jamie came on board two years later in 1956.  The name “Jamie” was drawn from Sussel’s daughter.  Jamie’s first single was by Marian Caruso titled “It’s Great to Fall In Love”.

The label was mainly kept afloat by the recordings of Duane Eddy and the Rebels.  Three labels, RCA, Dot and Modern all had previously turned Eddy down. (He would eventually end up on RCA after his departure from Jamie.)  Duane would align himself with Lee Hazelwood, and Lee in turn brought additional artists to Jamie/Guyden including Ernie Fields – a studio musician – and Mark Robinson.  Jamie entered into agreements with many subsidiary labels including:

Arctic – Chestnut – Dionn – Hercules – House Of Orange – Montel – MSL – Palm – Phil-L.A. Of Soul – Poogie – Romulus – Showtime – Silver Dollar – Sundi – Tear Drop – Top and Bottom and V-Tone

Jamie/Guyden held on against the odds confronting independent labels – still holding onto it’s original master catalog for CD production in the 1990’s and beyond.
