It’s not often that an obituary serves as a press release for an upcoming project, but when Abie Epstein passed last Friday evening, Hector Saldana of the San Antonio Express-News couldn’t help but break the last bright news spot in Abie’s 75 years on planet earth.
In March we spent a couple weeks down in Texas working on a handful of projects, the largest being a massive deal with former San Antonio record magnate Abie Epstein. From 1959 to 1970 Epstein ran a slew of labels, including Jox, Cobra, Dynamic, Soulsville USA, and a handful of other one shot logos. Over the course of that decade+ he released nearly 200 singles, and recorded who knows how many more at his Epstein Enterprises studio. He had a handful of regional breakouts, none larger than the Commands 1966 double sider “Hey It’s Love” b/w “No Time For You.” Listen here:[audio https://numerogroup.files.wordpress.com/2012/04/07-no-time-for-you-copy.mp3]
The Numero Group is pleased to announce a handful of Epstein-related projects coming down the pipe over the next year. We only with that Abie would have stuck around long enough to see the fruits of his long abandoned labor.
Rest In Peace, Abie.
