Alane Cochran And The Nomads
Mfg. by Confederate Record Corp.
The unknown Alane Cochran is perhaps a relative of Wayne Cochran, a Macon recording artist who may have been owner of the Conco label, or part-owner with Bobby Smith.
I'm aware of only two other records on the same label :
- 145 Rocking Capris : Money / Lights Out
- 146 Otis Redding : Fat Gal
Bobby Smith died recently. He founded Confederate Records, Boblo Records, and Macon Recording Studio, the first recording studio in Macon.
Macon, GA- James R. "Bobby" Smith died Thursday, October 11, 2012.
Mr. Smith attended Mabel White Baptist Church and Musella Baptist Church. He was a die-hard University of Georgia fan. A former baseball and basketball coach, he played against the Harlem Globetrotters in an exhibition match in Macon. Mr. Smith founded Confederate Records, Bob-Lo Records, and Macon Recording Studio, the first recording studio in Macon. He worked with many artists, including Otis Redding, James Brown, Wayne Cochran, Bobby Lee, Jerry Lee Lewis and Jimmy Ellis [Orion]. After retiring, his passion was working in his yard. He was predeceased by his daughter, Linda Neal, and brother, Billy Smith.
