Hy-Tone gospel discography (c. 1963 – early 70’s)
- There were several Hy-Tone labels, this discography is about the Hy-Tone label from California, although in the 1970’s it operated from Dallas, TX. The Texas 45’s were released in the 300 and 400 series, but Hytone 371 (note the alternative spelling) shows one of the California addresses (13515 Van Nuys Blvd.).
- The exact years of release are unknown, but it seems that most Californian 45’s were released in the mid 1960’s.
- There were at least three Californian addresses for this Hy-Tone label: 1190 Browning Boulevard – Los Angeles, 1149 S. Highland Ave – Los Angeles, 13515 Van Nuys Blvd – Pacoima.
- Hy-Tone 108 (Melody Kings) has been released twice, featuring the same songs, but one version features live recordings, the other studio recordings. There are no differences in the labels.
- Proverb was in a way connected to Hy-Tone, check the Proverb discography for more details.
