Rocket Record Co.

LOCATION: P.O. Box 3896, Portland, OR
OWNER(s): Cara Isabel Meyer
TIMESPAN: 1954-1959
MISC NOTES: This label was also associated with Meyer's businesses including Rocket Records, the Rocket Record Mfg. Co., and her home-based Rocket Recording Studio. The operation often solicited lyrics or songs from individuals and then contracted the recordings, pressing, distribution, and promotion of the resultant records. In 1959 a lawsuit against Meyers' by a client evidently resulted in a judgment that" "Mrs. Myers has falsely stated that all of her recordings are made by top professional musicians ... that the records are made in an expensively equipped studio; that her records are nationally advertised many times; and that she undertakes, at her own expense, and extensive advertising and publicity campaign for the promotion and sale of records produced under her label." On July 21, 1959, the Hearing Examiner handed down an "order for the suppression of the fraudulent enterprise."

MISC NOTES: In January 2014 Charles Martin of Chewelah, WA, informed us that: "'Because You Changed Your Mind'" was recorded early 1957, before March by the Hills Brothers. Gibb Martin wrote the song early 1920's,  Gibb Martin was my Grandfather  and he wrote the song about the time he and my Grandmother were getting a divorce  early 1920's. They were going to get back together and my grandmother changed her mind and went ahead and got a divorce, hence the title 'Because You Changed Your Mind.'"
