The Autumn Records Story

Gene Sculatti, Edsel Records, 1986

It was no Sun Records. It wasn't Philles or Dimension, or Cameo-Parkway or even Big Top. But Autumn Records surely qualifies as one of America's most curious and colorful independent labels – for the handful of great sides it issued, for the promise of what it almost became, and for the fact that it so boldly and swingingly occupied the right place at the right time.
