Sims Records

Profile:
Independent label from Los Angeles, California, active between 1955-1968.

It's founder, Russell Sims had been associated with country music in the late 40's and early 50's and became a sort of touring manager for T.Texas Tyler who was a Four Star Records artist. A meeting with Fabor Robison in 1951 allowed Sims to witness the birth of Robison's Abbott and Fabor labels and gave him the desire to start his own record company. Sims Records began in Los Angeles in the early 50's with a financial grant from Robison who was already successful with Jim Reeves ánd began to record local country musicians. After an unsuccessful start, Sims relocated to Nashville in the early 60's and began to add gospel and r&b musicians to his roster. One of his releases by The Kelly Brothers sold well, but by the late 1968 Sims was running short of money and the company was put in "Mothballs" In 1999 Sims re-opened his label with a multi-disc set of Bob Wills music.
