Dover

4104 – Alex Spearman – What In The World/Please Baby Please

Dover was a Cosimo Matassa label out of New Orleans.  It was owed a lot of money by other smaller New Orleans labels for which Matassa provided production and distribution deals.  The Dover label became insolvent around 1968 and this caused a severe shake up for the local New Orleans record industry.  Hines managed to get this Alex Spearman 45 released on Dover sometime around the mid-60s.
