Steve Alaimo was into making rock records when the Allman brothers pulled their van into the Tone Distributors parking lot in Hialeah looking for a chance to cut some sides. Henry Stone welcomed them in and even gave them permission to crash at the warehouse for a couple of weeks while they put some sounds on tape. Tone record promoter “Bluenote Bob” Perry still remembers showing Duane all the old blues lines that Tone represented. And soon enough Duane was playing slide guitar in the old Tone studio, and Gregg was working on the “Melissa” demo with Steve. Bold Records is a collector’s icon of a label. And here are ten great reasons why.
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. This 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.
