Shane Records: The Discography




SHANE RECORDS: THE DISCOGRAPHY


I've seen the Shane label pegged as a Louisiana label. That's a good guess, as many of the label's acts are from the Pelican State, but this was another Huey P. Meaux label based in Conroe, Texas (later Pasadena). It appears to have started out as a regular label but over time became a vanity/custom label for bands who paid for the privilege. Most of the output is early sixties teen pop with some New OrleansR&B flavor (some sessions were probably done at Cosimo's), with early efforts from Wayne Talbert (as "Larry Wayne"), Gee Gee Shinn, Phil Bo, and Hank (Henry) Moore. Toward the end there was a good minor key effort from a Hispanic soul group, Steve and the Coronas, and garage band sounds from two Houston area groups, the Actioneers and the Eccentrics. The latter two appear to be the only groups on Shane to have been reissued, and the label remains painfully obscure.

“Shane was a label that I would put out stuff that I didn’t think quite had the quality to make it.” (Huey Meaux, 1992)
