Art Rupe, legendary record producer & founder of SPECIALTY RECORDS
History of Specialty Records - TCS Interview.

02-Excerpts from Troy Cory Interview, about his early days in Hollywood as a recording artist, and song writer. CLICK FOR FULL TCS Pete Allman INTERVIEW.

Actually, says Troy Cory in a recent Celebrity Scene story with Pete Allman, about his early days in Hollywood, "it is my understanding that Art Rupe's very first taste of the record business occurred when he joined his friend, Robert Scherman (b. 1920/June/14, Indianapolis, IN), a songwriter, record producer and his UCLA classmate. They started ATLAS RECORDS in 1944.
Atlas Records released some of the 1st recordings by The Nat King Cole Trio, Johnny Moore's Three Blazers with Charles Brown, Al Sack and Frankie Laine. It was a short stay (4 months), just long enough to convince Arthur Goldberg (Rupe's real name) that he wanted to start up his own label, JUKE BOX RECORDS.
According to the 1946/August/10 Billboard issue, Rupe's share of JUKE BOX was sold to Al Middleman (of Sterling Records) who had joined him a few months earlier. According to the agreement, Rupe became the owner of the masters he produced for Roy Milton, The Sepia Tones and The Buddy Banks Sextet (with The Blues Man and The Blues Woman). The masters were released on Rupe's new label - SPECIALTY RECORDS. Middleman continued the JUKE BOX Records from his New York City office. - See eRIC Leblanc
Larry Williams - 1957 to 1959, singer - songwriter - pianist, was one of the first black "rock 'n roll stars" for Specialty; and Troy Cory - 1957 to 1959, singer - songwriter, was the first white recording artist.
It was during the last days of Specialty Records,
in 1957, that Sonny Bono heard Troy Cory performance in a high school Christmas play, and soon thereafter was signed as Specialty artist. It was also the same year Little Richard left Specialty to become a preacher, and like Richard, Rupe changed his outlook on life, thus one of the reasons as to why Rupe was swayed by Sonny Bono and Rene Hall to sign Troy. The other reason was the success Randy Wood of Dot Records was having in making itself into a major record company with Pat Boone, and the new rock-a-billy sound.
Troy first single was a rock-a-billy upbeat sound, arranged by Rene Hall and produced by Sonny Bono, "I'm Just A Lost Ball In High Weeds and the old Gene Austin song, "Yearning". Rene Hall (guitar), Plas Johnson (tenor sax), Lee Allen (tenor sax) and Earl Palmer (drums), were featured on most of Troy's early rock recordings.
During this same period, Rupe with the help of Sonny Bono, was able to make Lloyd Price's former valet, singer, Larry Williams into a Little Richard - sound-a-like clone. Williams hits included "Just Because," "Peaches and Cream", Short Fat Fannie," and "Bony Moronie."  The last two made it to the top ten. William sides featured a few of Sonny Bono songs and pioneer players like Rene Hall (guitar), Plas Johnson (tenor sax), Lee Allen (tenor sax) and Earl Palmer (drums), Hungary Williams (drums). Williams died in 1980 at age 44.
If you listen close to Williams recordings, you'll hear a voice sound resemblance that was picked up by Rod Stewart in the 60s. Click Here To View the sound recorded at Troy Cory's Vine Street Video Center in 1978.
Sam Cooke dissatisfied  with singing only gospel music wanted to sing pop.Rupe was afraid Specialty would lose of Cooke's gospel audience if he began releasing him singing pop.
The end of 1957 saw Specialty with three top ten records "Bony Moronie," "I'll Come Running Back to You," and "Keep A-Knockin'."
1958 saw Specialty's last Top Ten record "Good Golly Miss Molly, " a Little Richard master from 1956. Troy Cory's new single,Down On The Beach and Just One More Chance (1958) produced by Sonny, failed to hit the charts.
That, and the Sonny Bono, Troy Cory and Tip Tobin efforts to effect a "special" comedy team dj show, an outer space movie deal, the lose of Little Richard, the break up of Rupes marriage, and the feeling that he should have listened to the lyrics of Sam Cooke's hit, "Darling You Send Me" a little closer, before letting him go, caused Rupe to lose interest in the record business.
Having made big bucks from other financial business interest, and tired of the many music and publication business headaches, he turned the day-to-day operations over to others, and moved his offices to the building that's now the West Hollywood City Hall. Of course Sonny Bono became Sonny and Cher, Mayor of Palm Springs, then a member of the U.S. House of Representattives, before his death.
