That's What I Want You To Do

Shelter Music BMI

Choice 850

 Leroy Davidson, his wife Millie and Harold Hassler, 1971

Choice Records, offshoot of One Stop Phono Records, a record distributing chain located in Kansas City owned by Leroy Davidson, was active between 1956 and 1958.

In 1960, Davidson launched a new label, R label.  The initial disking by Zig Dillon and Frank (Shake Aplenty) Frazier were recorded with the aid of Sam Phillips and Scotty Moore, of the Sun Records organization, and "both men will continue to aid in the recording of R label artists".  (Billboard July 18, 1960)
