New Yorker George Goldner had a hand in a number of famous labels throughout the late Forties and Fifties, spanning Latin American music, urban blues and doo-wop. His impact on popular music can be gauged by the fact that in 2012, some four decades after his death, he became the subject of a stage musical, The Boy From New York City. The early songs featured here on Gee Records are the first pages of that script featuring the likes of the Echoes, the Regents and Frankie Lymon.
