News! Paul "The Hit Man" Urbahns has a new website @ www.hitrecordsofnashville.com . It's still under construction but please stop by and while you're at it visit his new Hit Record discussion group @ http://groups.yahoo.com/group/HitRecords
|OK . Come clean! If you visited this site we
know that you have a certain fondness for this low budget
sound-a-like record label. You either loved them or hated
them. One thing is certain, a lot of talent recorded for
Hit Records of Nashville. Some are familiar names [ Sandy Posey
AKA Betty York, Sherry York ,Betty
Richards, & Sandy,
and Bobby Russell
, Jalopy Five, Beasts, & The
Doodles] and some completely
dropped off the radar. Most artists names used by Hit
Records were completely fictionous while artists Bobby
Russell , John Preston, Herbert Hunter , Alpha Zoe, Benny
and others used their real names on occasion. Do
you have info on this label or the artists? We want your
input. Email us @ The Hit
Record Project Please include HIT RECORDS
in the subject area. Any typo's on this site kan bee blamed on Jamie
- The Monkee Junkee. ~Spike
Work in progress. Click here for a very incomplete Country & Western Hits section. Locating info on these records appears to be a much more difficult task and will take longer to complete. If you have any in your collection and would like to contribute please contact The Hit Record Project . Include C & W HITS in the subject area.
I recently talked to Alpha Zoe. She is truly a superstar.

Rockin' Ronnie is looking for Hit records to complete his collection. Please EMAIL him if you have any you want to sell or trade. Ronnie has been collecting records for almost forty years and loves the obscure artist because they have not been "played to death" by every oldies station in the world.
Paul Urbahns would also like to hear from you if you have Hit records to sell or trade or songs recorded by Hit regardless of the label they were released on [Examples - See Hit #2 & #11 below]. Paul has been collecting and doing research on Hit Records for over 30 years. He is our resident "Hit Man" for details on the record label and artists. Paul has a wealth of information on Hit but can always use more . If you have any info on the artists or their whereabouts , or if you are one of the artists that recorded for Hit , please contact him at his EMAIL address.
Sp!ke , like Ronnie loves the obscure artist. He also is a big fan of recording artists that write their own material , tiny record labels , and just about anything that has to do with 50's & 60's recordings. In his spare time he works on discographies and websites. EMAIL Spike.
Jamie The Monkee Junkee - Super Monkees fan , great guy , and my son [Spike Jr]. He is a full time Monkee nut and in his spare time he helps with this website , doing all of the typing and trying to read my handwriting. Email him.
