The first releases were pressed at Columbia’s plant and consequently have ZTSC matrix numbers. Most of the other records used numbers supplied by RCA’s facility and are prefixed with P or R, denoting years 1963 and 1964 respectively.


Lillian Dorr – The Thrill Is Gone
The Pacesetters – Around The World
Gino Washington – Iím A Coward

 Below are the 45s that were released on either the Correc-tone or Sonbert labels. However, there were quite a few other Correc-tone recordings that were sold to labels such as Time, VeeJay and Double L.
