Practical Joker

The Blue Jays

Practical Joker

Roulette 4169

Kenny Martin, one of the songwriter, seems to have worked exclusively for Stan Feldman and Ed Portnoy, who owned the tiny New-York Ivy label.

Ivy Records produced a number of masters - not released on their label - but leased to bigger labels such as ABC-Paramount subsidiary Apt Records (The Stereophonics, The Cavaliers, Bobby Baron, The Forevers), Gone subsidiary Mark-X (The Rhythm Aces), Petite (The Flints), Roulette (The Ivies) etc.

It's quite likely that the Blue Jays' Roulette sides were cut as well by Ivy Records.
