Our research for releases in the 800 45 RPM single series has several gaps where the content of that release is unknown or even if that number was used in this series. The diverse nature of the releases documented below indicates that this was a “catch all” series with folk, jazz vocal, jazz, comedy, surf rock and pop. Dick Bock hired Nick Venet as A&R with hopes to score a hit single among these releases.
Pacific Jazz & World Pacific artists included in this group of releases include: Bud and Travis, Don Ralke, The Swingers (Dave Lambert, Jon Hendricks and Annie Ross), Gloria Smythe, Annie Ross with the Buddy Bregman Orchestra, Don Sargent, Jimmy Witherspoon, The Uniques, Darlene Woods and The Starlings, The Titans, The Rainbeaus, Stan Ross, The Gamblers, Don Randi, Jon Hendricks, Jon Hendricks and Pony Poindexter, Les McCann Ltd., Gloria Smythe and the Ronnie Ball Trio, Danny Dell, Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks, Bruce Spencer, and Rudy Ray Moore.
