The SCORE Label, part of the ALADDIN set up, was primarily a vehicle for R&B, Jazz, and Black Gospel releases. However, tucked away in the 4000 series was a solitary Hillbilly release, which was tagged as Folk!

SCORE 4007
Good-Bye To Love (Deadwax AL 622)
(“Teepee” Mitchell – Lew Porter) (ASCAP)
Go Away, Go Away, Go Away (Deadwax AL 623)
(“Teepee” Mitchell – Lew Porter) (ASCAP)

Michel Ruppli's ALADDIN / IMPERIAL LABELS (Greenwood Press 1991) notes that Bob Morris recorded four songs for SCORE on 26th January 1949. It further states that backing was provided by Smokey Rogers' band. The two unissued recordings are:

Empty Heart (AL 620)
Cry Baby Cry (AL 621)


  1. "Go Away" has a nice sound. Really good, thanks!

  2. That's Joaquin as sure as you're born.
