We can thank Tab for the beginnings of Warner Brothers Records, which turned into one of the top 3 labels in the world.
I too remember that pink label spinning around on my sisters old RCA 45 player. I think the next time I remember seeing it was for the theme to the TV show "77 Sunset Strip" by Don Ralke.
"His (acting) success prompted Jack L. Warner to enforce the actor's contract with the Warner Bros. studio by banning Dot Records, the label for which Hunter had recorded the single (and which was owned by rival Paramount Pictures), from releasing a follow-up album he had recorded for them. He established Warner Bros. Records specifically for Hunter."
