    Hot Biscuit Disc Co (Jimmy Wisner, etc.)

    Can anyone tell me much about this New York based record label.
    The label had its best successes in the mid 1970's (when it was distributed by Capitol Records) with artists such as Timothy Carr ........

    But the 45 label logo states that the label was established in 1967 ....

    ... and this photo from March 1968 shows the Hot Biscuit execs hosting a launch for Baltimore area radio jocks / programme directors, so they must have been releasing stuff back in the 60's.

    They were employing the likes of Jimmy Wisner in the 70's, so must have had some sort of profile by then.
    But apart from a few 45 releases, I can't find out anything about the company at all.

    I think it was active in the late '60s...don't know of any '70s releases on the label.

    That Timothy Carr record is pretty good...the song was done by quite a few acts. I also like the Epic Splendor record, "A Little Rain Must Fall", which is a nice beach music styled record.

    Best,
