County Records

County Records

Profile:
County Records is a Record Label often confused with County Sales, a retail business selling CDs, books, T-shirts,...

They have one thing in common: until 2018, they had the same owner.

The County Records label was started in 1963 [or 1964 ?] by Dave Freeman in his native New York.
In 1965 he started a mail-order outlet [County Sales] and in 1974 he moved both businesses to Floyd, Virginia.

County Records "died" in January 2018

On LPs, County Records first specialized in 1920-30's reissues of "Old-Time Music" recordings [200 to 500]
in 1965 then added their 700 series [most recorded by Charles Faurot ]

Late 1960's they added some classic bluegrass, like Kenny Baker, Lilly Brothers & Don Stover, ..

Their last release brought us back to 1965 with "Legends Of Old-Time Music - Fifty Years Of County Records ‎(4xCD + Box)"

a fitting title for that label.
