Golden Crest

Profile:
Also appears as "Golden Crest Records".
Golden Crest was headed by Clark Galehouse at manufacturing premises in Huntington Station from 1956 until his death in 1983. Galehouse saw the independent record business grow from a cottage industry to a powerhouse on the back of rock ‘n’ roll music. He participated in this growth through his Shelley Products pressing plant, servicing many national labels. Through Golden Crest and other labels, he released a wide range of music from rock ‘n’ roll and rhythm & blues to the classics.

In 1953, Galehouse formed Crest Records in honor of his Creston, Iowa. Golden Crest was introduced in late 1956, just as rock ‘n’ roll was establishing itself through Bill Haley and Elvis Presley. However, the early releases were mostly dated pop reflecting Galehouse’s formative years in music. Over a nearly 30-year time span, Golden Crest released more than 500 commercial albums (plus many custom releases for colleges and schools) and some 200 45 rpm singles.
