Topaz Records

LOCATION: 622 Union St, Seattle / 2227 5th Ave., Seattle / 4718 38th Ave. N.E., Seattle
OWNER(s): Bud Busha (1958-1959) / Rick Wheeldon & Grant Hill (1959-1964) / Kearney Barton (Feb. 1967 - 1990)
TIMESPAN: 1958-1990
MISC NOTES: In 1960 Bob Reisdorff's Dolton Records moved into the old Electricraft recording studio location at 622 Union in Seattle and provided space for another young label. Bud Busha ["boo-shay"] had a desk there for his Topaz label (Dolton moved Bud's  organ into the studio on the mezzanine level). Then, Bud sold the label to Rick Wheeldon --  boyfriend of the Fleetwoods' Gretchen Christopher -- and Grant Hill who  worked from an office at 622.  Unpaid recording bills eventually led Hill to give the label to recording engineer Kearney Barton of Seattle. Topaz soon became the "flagship" label at Barton's recording studio Audio Recording, Inc.

Visually, the label Barton inherited featured a  gold background. A stylized, longhand TopaZ  was written across the top of the label above the spindle hole. On 45s the tails of the letters T p and Z were cropped by the spindle hole. On small hole discs the word was intact. All lettering and numerals were black.  Later, some label backgrounds moved to darker gold or yellow.

Throughout the Topaz label's history the format described above appeared on all small small hole discs.  The same was true for 45s  with three exceptions:

1.) #1347  featured the traditional Topaz  word logo, words and lettering on a blue label background

2.) # 1335 and # 1348  featured a yellow label background with small, block lettered TOPAZ RECORDS centered above the spindle hole. All letters and numerals were black.

NOTE:  There is only one known non-disc Topaz product. (See TLSC-1245)

MISC NOTES: Little Bill: "'Sweet Cucumber' was a dream. I just dreamt the title and then woke up in the middle of the night and thought it was a weird sounding name, so I wrote a song around it. Ron Peterson [of the Frantics] did the arrangement. 'Why Was I Ever Born' was supposed to be the one that sold, but it didn't work out. It had strings by some guy from the Seattle Symphony who came down and played on it. It was a ballad. A tear-jerker. I really did like that song, but it never caught on."

Topaz T - 1315 was one of the Wheedle's Groove reproductions. Although pressed on heavier wax, to the naked eye the repro looks exactly like the original. However, the dead (runout) wax information is different. Please see below.

Second 45 outing for a young woman born on the island of Susak in what is now Yugoslavia, but who now calls Seattle her home.  Ms. Picinich came to Puget Sound country via Italy with her family in the 1960s. As for her recordings, Judy emphazes that she is not a professional performer, merely someone ho has enjoyed singing for her own pleassure and with church groups, so decided to make records for friend both here and overseas. In this vein, she made her first 4 tune ep featuring "Tutte Le Mamme",  "Al Di La", "Nella Valle and "Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White" back in 1974 (Topaz Records TS - 1332 Seattle, WA.).  Commenting on her second 4 selection disc she characterizes "Begging For My Love" as the melody to the popular Italian tune Tutte Le Mamme to which added original lyrics. As for " I Believe" and "Yours", she says they are two of her favorite American songs, while "Vecchio Scarpone" (Old Shoe) which is sung in  Italian, was popular in that county during the early 1950s. All four songs are mid tempoed ballads.

Solo debut for a thirty seen year old singer/songwriter/guitarist who got his musical start some ten years back when he formed a band called The Monks while with the Army in Germany. Returning to the Pacific Northwest, Dave worked as a single in lounges for a couple of years before hanging up his musical career to pursue other ventures. Now, he's back into music with a 45 rpm recording. As for his selections, he describes "I Want The Right To Be Free" as an up tempo light rock number with lyrical content based on the personal experience of being stranded in Germany for six months while awaiting return to the U.S. "G. I. Blues", says Dave, is the old Elvis Presley tune with more of a '50s rock n' roll arrangement.

Singer/songwriter/guitarist Dale Marwood has been penning songs and performing around Puget Sound for years, Those same years have seen Dale issue a number of records either on his own or as a member of The Dirty Beaver Jug Band. His latest effort comes with Ambush, a country rock group that broke up a year before this, the act's first disc was released. As for a and that no longer exists putting out a record, Dale says it was done both for former Ambush members and as a memento for fans garnered by the act's year and a half of club dates in the community of Renton just south of Seattle. Marwood characterizes "It's Not Easy Havin' Fun" as an up tempo number with a definite country feel. A novelty tune, it lyrically deals with the humorous side of the morning after a weekend's partying. As for "I Can Get Off On You", Mr. Marwood says the tune, popularized by co-writers Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings, was recorded because of its popularity with Ambush audiences. Compared to the original, Ambush's version is faster and features more vocal harmony.

Henson was track announcer at the former Longacres horse racing track in Renton/Tukwila south of Seattle. "And There They Go" was a novelty number that mentioned a montage of names of real horses racing on the track during the late 1970s/early 1980s. However, permission had not been received from one or more horse owners to use their horse's name, so the disc was either released and pulled from the market or never issued.

Life's experiences and a deep love of music have taken Sister Yvonne from a hobbiest's of  musical interests to professional status within the field. Serving as choir director for St. John's Catholic parish in north Seattle, earlier this year the Sister released an alum of her original works entitled "Chasing A Rainbow" (Topaz Records TLS - 1235 Seattle, WA).  With the eruption of Mt. St. Helens came the desire to release a tune about the event, a motivation which has lead to "Mountain Man."  Sister Yvonne characterizes the selection as a thoughtful folk ballad focusing on the emotional bond that existed between Harry Truman and The Mountain, a relationship that was as strong as that between many humans. Chosen to accompany "Mountain Man" is "Cheer Up", a happy up-tempo cut from the "Chasing A Rainbow" album. Sister Yvonne describes the tune as one of the most requested selections from the package.

MISC NOTES:

Debut single from a thirty one year old singer/songwriter/guitarist long calling the Olympic Peninsula area of Washington State his home. After learning to play guitar and write songs in order to pursue a love of singing, Willie joined the ranks of professional performing some three years back and, most recently is found playing Peninsula area clubs with his country rock band Clearwater Junction. Still as a songwriter, he says one of the things he wanted to do most was record some of his original compositions. He saw that dream come true via Seattle's Audio Recording and Topaz Records. Commenting on his recorded selections, Willie characterizes "I Got Drunk"  as a mid tempoed country tune with "working man' lyrics. As for "Body Rhythm", the selection is tagged as a danceable country rock number about a dance hall love affair.

MISC NOTES: When Kearney Barton learned that the Beatles were to be holding a press conference, he grabbed a portable recorder and raced over to the Seattle Center Coliseum to record the event. Two decades later he dug that tape out and this limited edition (2000 discs) was the result. (Produced for the John Lennon Memorial Society of Portland Oregon, they confused things a bit by conflating Seattle's Memorial Stadium, with the Coliseum.)
