If a label can be termed a one-hit wonder, then perhaps Apt Records is it. A subsidiary of the mighty ABC-Paramount, it was launched in 1958 to release pop singles and made the very top of the Billboard listings with one of its first four single releases. It continued to put out 45s (no albums) until it was shelved in 1966, but never duplicated that success. With tracks from The Elegants, Donnie La Near and The Fawns – Apt Records joins the long list of labels that briefly gave us some amazing music before their time was up.
