“Congratulations and continued success to “The Chairman Of The Board” from Tone Distributors, Inc. 495 S.E. Tenth Court. Hialeah, FL 305-887-7546,” so reads the text from page 42 of a 1965 edition of Cash Box magazine from Henry Stone to Frank Sinatra.
Stone and Sinatra were familiar with each other, often rubbing elbows at locations like the Fontainebleau on Miami Beach. As a distributor, Stone had long been involved with the Reprise Records label, Warner Bros, and its President, Mo Ostin.
In fact, in a 2013 interview, Stone recalled the time he had to explain to a phalanx of security goons who Mo Ostin was, and to let him backstage at a Sinatra show.
From 1946 to 2014, Henry Stone ruled the Florida music industry with an iron fist, a brick of cash, and a warehouse full of vinyl. HSM is the last of over one hundred record labels he personally founded. The HSM record label includes works from every decade in his sixty-five year career right up until today. Licensing available for film, samples, advertising, movies, video games, and more. Family owned and operated.
