Joe Simon

Rare 45rpm 7" Soul R&B Record

Wounded Man / Farther On Down The Road

Country: USA

Label: Sound Stage 7

Disc: VG++

Sound Stage 7 was an American, Nashville, Tennessee based record label of the 1960s and 1970s, noted mainly for its soul music releases. The label's biggest star was Joe Simon, who placed numerous singles on the U.S. R&B and pop charts during his 1965-1970 tenure.

            The label was founded in 1963 by Fred Foster, who had already achieved a measure of success as the founder of Monument Records. Monument was known primarily as a country and pop label. Sound Stage 7 was founded specifically to house artists who were more oriented towards R&B, although in its very early years the label was also home to several pop acts.

            Despite releasing singles by dozens of artists, for the first two years that the company was in operation, the only Sound Stage 7 musicians to reach the U.S. Top 40 were The Dixie Belles, who had a #9 U.S. pop hit in 1963 with "(Down At) Papa Joe's", and also scored a #15 pop hit with follow-up single "Southtown, USA." The Dixie Belles were produced by Bill Justis. The group broke up after their third single failed to hit the Billboard Hot 100. Their only other artist to chart during this period were The Monarchs, who had a minor hit with "Look Homeward Angel" (#47) in early 1964.

The John Richbourg era (1965-1970)

            In mid-1965, Foster struck a deal with John Richbourg who became the label's head of A&R. From this point on, Sound Stage 7 was strictly a soul and R&B label, and almost all of the label's output was produced by Richbourg under the aegis of his JR Enterprises company. Also working for JR Enterprises was the songwriter, co-producer and occasional recording artist, Allen Orange, who was Richbourg's right-hand man until the late 1960s.

            Richbourg's biggest commercial success was bringing Joe Simon to the label in 1966. Simon had already scored two hits on Vee-Jay Records in 1964 and 1965, but was left without a recording contract when that label folded. Richbourg produced fifteen singles for Simon on the label between 1966 and 1970. All of them would make the U.S. pop and/or R&B charts. Simon's biggest success on the label was his 1969 hit "The Chokin' Kind", which hit #1 on the R&B charts, and #13 pop, and sold over a million copies.
