Truck Stop Sweethearts & C.B. Savages: The Plantation Records Story 1968-1981

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
Shelby Singleton, the former head of Mercury Records and Smash Records, and firmly established as a record industry maverick, started Plantation Records in 1968, with the idea of making it a dedicated country label, but given Singleton's idiosyncratic nature, it ended up featuring plenty of pure novelty releases, too.
