Jewel Records Custom Records :
"Jewel was a house label for recordings done at Rusty York's studio in Mt. Healty, a suburb of Cincinnati. Jewel was the primary label, but several subsidiary names were used like Teen (for the teen garage bands) and Log Cabin (for country, although most of the Jewel records were country). Jewel records used several numbering systems but the primary ones were the 700 series and the early 900 series. There are many overlapping numbering systems, which are detailed HERE" [source : Buckeye Beat website]
