Folk Music Inc. seems to have been at least partly a "generic;" a label that provided knock off versions of current hits, played by no name artists, for a cheaper price. However, the selections are not uniformly drawn from the charts; from what I can tell, most of the "hits" covered are from 1951-52.
Does anyone know where this label was based? For some reason I had always thought New Jersey, but actually the labels do not provide provenance, so I'm not sure where I got that idea.
