States Records, a numerical listing

May 1952~November 1957, Chicago

United Records owner Lew Simpkins announced the start of a new record label to be called States in affiliation with United. States recorded some of Chicago's better local R & B talent.

All labels that I've seen have an "S-" before the catalog number.

NOTE: This listing is created for research and educational purposes only. I only own a small proportion of the phonograph records listed, and those I own are NOT FOR SALE. I also have no particular insight as to how to acquire them. With the information you have found here, search eBay, gemm.com, or post a question to 78-C. Otherwise, you'll need to spend hours over a period of time searching junk stores, garage sales, record auctions (both mail and internet), and anyplace else that may have 78rpm discs for sale.

Special thanks to J. Junior Black and WKRN radio
