Gold Label Records
Over ten years ago, Pat Boone copyrighted the name “Gold Label” and formulated the concept of a “senior tour for singers.” All the major labels have dropped most of the major artists and living legends who are older now than 40 or 50. That upset him for two reasons—one, he admired almost all those artists, and two, he was one! To the giant companies, the Baby Boomer generation doesn’t exist; they’re only interested in kids and young adults. But Pat believed he could do both, developing young artists and continuing to give mature fans more records from the artists that helped grow the companies in the first place! He contacted a number of singers who’d sold millions of records, and who were still doing concerts all over the world, and told them about the Gold Label, and over the next three years released 26 new CDs by fabulous singers like Jack Jones, Glen Campbell, Patty Page, Cleo Laine, The Four Freshmen, ShaNaNa, The Ventures, and many more, including multiplatinum Roger Williams.

The Storyville archive includes recordings by Louis Armstrong, Ben Webster, Duke Ellington, Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis, and Benny Carter, to name but a few. Storyville was also instrumental in launching the careers of some of the most influential Danish jazz artists, including Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen, Fessor’s Big City Band, and the legendary Papa Bues Viking Jazz Band. In 2005, a Danish company named Editions Wilhelm Hansen acquired Storyville from Knudsen’s family.
