Dootone/Dooto Album Discography
By Dave Edwards, Mike Callahan, and Patrice Eyries
Last update: January 13, 2010

9512 South Central Avenue, Los Angeles (Photo courtesy of Ace Records-UK) The Dootone Record label was formed in 1951 by Walter (Dootsie) Williams in Los Angeles, California. The address of the company for many years was 9512 South Central Avenue, which originally was Williams' home in Watts. For a number of years, the record label was run out of the enclosed front porch of the house, but later the Williams family moved so that the record company could take over the whole house. Dootsie Williams had started a label called "Blue Records" starting in 1949. In 1951, he changed the name of the label to Dootone. Two of the first three singles on Dootone [#301 and #303] were by Johnny Creach, a violinist who would become famous in the Woodstock era as "Papa John" Creach, and would be heard on Jefferson Starship records two decades later.

Dootone recorded rhythm and blues, jazz, comedy, gospel and popular music. The label name was changed to Dooto in January 1957 (to avoid a lawsuit from Duo-Tone Records). Singles numbered 301 to 409 were on the Dootone label, with the switch to Dooto coming at single #410. Albums changed from Dootone at #223, released in 1956, to Dooto at #224, released in 1957. Even though the name changed in 1957, some albums and possibly singles released after that time are known to still have the Dootone label. This is most likely due to using up old label-blank stock as a cost-saving measure, or in the case of the later albums, as a nostalgia trip.

Redd Foxx As can be seen from the following discography, the vast majority of the albums released by the label were raunchy party records, or "blue" material (as in, "swearing a blue streak"). As with most comedy records before the late 1960s, the language on these discs was not actually obscene at all, but rather, "suggestive," with the double-entendres. But in the 1950s, these records stayed under the record store counter unless somebody came in and asked for them. The most successful comedian on the label was Redd Foxx (real name: John Elroy Sanford), and he sold thousands of records on college campuses before most people ever heard of him. Redd Foxx was a comedian on the burlesque circuit, providing the comedy routines between the strippers. He had teamed up in Baltimore in the early 1950s with comedian Slappy White as the duo "Redd & White." After the duo agreed to go their separate ways in the mid- 1950s, Foxx relocated to California and signed a long contract with Dootsie Williams' Dootone label. Foxx and Williams had a falling out around 1963, but Foxx was legally tied to Dooto until Frank Sinatra bought his contract for Sinatra's Loma label in 1967. Foxx went on to mainstream success with the 1970s TV comedy series Sanford and Son, playing Fred G. Sanford (actually, his older brother's name - as well as his father's, whom he never met).

The Penguins (Photo courtesy of Ace Records UK) If Dooto had only produced the "blue" material, it would probably be long forgotten by now (except, of course, on web pages such as this). But the singles output of the label was a different story altogether. Before he got into blue comedy, Williams produced some great R&B vocal group records. Certainly the most successful, and many would say the best, was "Earth Angel" by the Penguins, a record that is often near to the top of oldie radio station lists of the greatest records of all time. The lead singer for the Penguins was Cleveland Duncan, and all the members attended Fremont High School in Los Angeles. In November, 1954, "Earth Angel" became one of the first R&B hit records to make the popular music charts on a national level, reaching #8. The members of the Penguins became unhappy with Dootsie Williams because he refused to give them advances on their royalties, so they got a new manager named Buck Ram. Ram took the Penguins to Mercury Records, who were interested in buying the Penguins' contract. But as part of the deal, Ram insisted on a Mercury recording contract for another group he managed, the Platters. Of course, history shows the Platters went on to tremendous success on Mercury, and interest in the Penguins waned. Even though many of the Mercury recordings by the Penguins were very good, they had little success after leaving Dootone, and by 1957, after Mercury had dropped them and they had but one single released on Atlantic, the dispirited group re-signed with Dootsie Williams and his re-named label, Dooto.

In 1954, Williams also recorded a group called the Medallions, with lead singer Vernon Green. They had a hit with "The Letter" in April and followed it up with "Buick 59" in July. Another group that had some success on Dootone was Don Julian and the Meadowlarks. In June of 1955, they had a hit with "Heaven and Paradise". Even though they never had a big hit, the Calvanes' EP [205], titled "Voices For Lovers," is cherished by vocal group collectors and sells for megabucks today.

Group vocal albums of note on the Dootone/Dooto labels include Best Vocal Groups in Rhythm and Blues [Dootone DL-204], which is sometimes referred to as "the first Penguins album" since one side is devoted to that group. (The other side has two songs each by the Medallions, Meadowlarks, and Dootones.) This album first appeared with a Dootone label on red vinyl and is incredibly rare (but as with all rare records, look out for counterfeits or "reproductions"). It was reissued later with the Dooto label. An album by the Penguins alone, titled The Cool, Cool Penguins [Dooto DTL-242], was released later, and this album, with the original yellow and red Dooto label, is also much in demand by collectors.

Another album of note is Dootone DL-223, Rock and Roll vs. Rhythm and Blues, with six songs by Roy Milton and six songs by Chuck Higgins. This album was probably released with a Dootone label because it was released prior to the label name change in 1957, but we have never seen one with that label. Dooto DL-224, Best Vocal Groups in Rock and Roll is also much in demand by collectors because it contains material by nine of Dooto's vocal groups.

The Willie Hayden album [Dooto DTL-293] is also interesting. Hayden was the lead singer who fronted the Dootone group, the Birds, although his name on those releases is listed as Willie Headen (which may have been the original spelling, although it was pronounced "Hayden."). The album contains the Birds group recordings in addition to Hayden solo. Some copies of this album have the original flat maroon Dootone label; that is unusual because it was released 3 years after the label name change. It also exists with a Dooto label.

Dooto also recorded jazz, and jazz collectors seek early albums by pianist Carl Perkins, Curtis Counce, Buddy Collette, and Dexter Gordon on the label. Perkins, not to be confused with the Sun Records rockabilly artist, was a black pianist originally from Indiana, who was gaining a great reputation in the Los Angeles jazz scene when he died in 1958 at the age of 29. Gospel on the label includes the Lillian Randolph Singers, the Zion Travelers, and the Soul Revivers.

Authentic Records was a budget subsidiary of Dooto. Their discography is covered separately.

The best days for the Dooto label were the mid-to-late 1950s, but the label survived into the 1970s mostly by repackaging and selling the Redd Foxx comedy records. Although Foxx had ended his contract with Dootone/Dooto in 1967 and moved on, Williams, who was now calling himself "The Foremost Authority on American Humor," used the tried-and-true industry practice of shamelessly recycling old recordings, culminating in a 1972 album titled Sanford & Foxx, [Dooto DTL-853], trying to cash in on the hit TV show, Sanford & Son. Redd Foxx was not amused, nor was the network. Although in tiny print on the bottom front of the record jacket it said, "An Anthology," to avoid legal problems, the jackets of this record were soon carrying a prominent sticker that said, "The material in this album is not from or based on the television series Sanford and Son'." It was only a few albums later, mostly more Redd Foxx reissues, that Dooto/Dootone finally closed up shop, around 1975. For all intents and purposes, the label had stopped being anything but a comedy album label when they stopped issuing 45s in 1964, and for the last few years had just hung on by reissuing the Redd Foxx catalog.

Dootone/Dooto used an unusual numbering system, both 33 1/3 RPM LPs and 45 RPM extended play albums were in the same series. In the following discography, we have indicated the format after the catalog number. Few of the Dootone/Dooto albums were issued in stereo, primarily because most were recorded before 1958, when stereo became viable. The 1970s issues were labeled stereo, but many of the Redd Foxx skits were recorded in mono, and appear in rechanneled stereo on these late albums.

Putting dates and order to the Dootone/Dooto labels is not an exact science. Theoretically, one would be able to match the logos on the record jackets to the first release label, but the albums were reissued so often, and the logos on the jacket front revised so often, and leftover label stock used so unpredictably, that this is just not easily done. The actual graphics of the album cover would change (and in one case, the album title) for many of the records upon reissue. We have attempted to sort out the labels and issue sequence as best as we can, but this discography should not be taken as the last word on the subject. In the record jacket illustrations below, we have freely substituted later issues with the same graphics (but with, say, a later logo style) to be able to illustrate how each cover appeared. EP issues almost invariably used the same graphics (to the extent they would fit with the EP text) as their LP counterparts, so in cases where we could not obtain photos of EP covers, we have used the covers for the LP for illustration. One last thing: EPs originally issued with the EPD- prefix were later reissued with a DTE- prefix.

We would appreciate any additions or corrections to this discography. Just send them to us via . Both Sides Now Publications is an information web page.

DTL-285 - LP - Songs Heard Through the Keyhole - Joel Cowan [1959] This album is banded. Joel Cowan was a guitarist who played in many of the 1940s big band orchestras and backed artists of the 1950s. He also wrote songs for several big-name artists. This is an album where he accompanies himself on guitar and sings ribald spoofs of old songs. The cover art is quite risqué for the time, featuring "movie starlet" Cia Dave in dishabille seen through a keyhole outline. Cia later played a small role in the 1962 film Two for the Seesaw, but that apparently was the extent of her film career.

Albums of Questionable Authenticity:

Dootone 203 - LP - Don Julian and the Meadowlarks - Don Julian & Meadowlarks [1970s?] This is a 16-track bootleg LP pressed on colored vinyl.
Dootone 400 - The Best of the Medallions - Medallions [1970s] This album has a Dootone label. Although some dealers in the collectors' market insist that this is a original Dootone release from the fifties, and we have seen it listed with prices ranging from 200 to 700 dollars, we have a copy of the album and believe it to be either a Dooto release from the 1970s or a 1970s-vintage bootleg, probably the latter. Bootleg copies of doo-wop and early R&B albums (that never were legitimately released) were rampant in the 1970s and available at most collectors' record shops. These bootlegs usually had original looking labels and used artwork from other albums or just lettering on the front. One thing that argues against this being a legitimate release is that the catalog number 400 conflicts with the number of a single, and Dootsie Williams was careful about his catalog numbering (we know of no other conflicts, and the LP series jumped from 300 to 801 to avoid re-using numbers). The cover is a 12 inch version of the original cover of the Medallions' EPD-202 (with a blue background instead of the original pink). It also has "Vocal Group Series Album #2" on the cover, as did EPD-202, but there is no known 12" album corresponding to "Vocal Group Series #1," another inconsistency Dootsie Williams was unlikely to make if this were a legitimate album. In any case, it's a nice Medallions' compilation, but we would advise against paying big bucks to get a copy of it. Want A Love/The Telegram/Dance And Swing/Coup Deville Baby/Edna/ Speedin'/Don't Shoot/Mary Lou/Dear Darling//Shedding Tears For You/Magic Mountain/For Better Or For Worse/Pushbutton Automobile/The Letter/Buick 59/Volvo/Unseen/A Lover's Prayer
Dooto D-1000 - Best of the Cufflinks - Cuff Links [197?] This is a bootleg pressed on red wax. Guided Missles/My Heart/It's Too Late Now/A Fool's Fortune/Trick Knees/Chancing My Love/I Don't Want Nobody//How You Lied/The Winner/Lawful Wedding/Zoom/My Love Is With You/So Tough
