The Ribbon label had all the ingredients of starting out as a small operation that would issue some vinyl with the idea of eventually finding the next hit record. Only problem with that theory was that their first record out of the gate was a hit. Make that a number twenty one smash that stayed on the Billboard pop charts for sixteen total weeks. Owners Alan Kallman and Tom Vanando set up shop at 1619 Broadway in New York City. Kallman had other music interests before and after this disc, which included Triple X, and Gone/End - where he would have worked with George Goldner. A total of twelve known records were issued, using the numbers 6901 to 6914. I have not accounted for 6907 and 6912. The label was active from 1959 to 1960, and the Fireflies
had three discs, while the related artist Ritchie Adams had two, as did the Scott Brothers. Sometimes, the name of the game with small labels was to try and get a hit record or two, and then close it down and start another label, like Leo Rogers seemed to do. Regardless, some great music was made in a short amount of time, along with a few hit records.
