Welcome to Mellow's Log Cabin. This blog's purpose is to supply information on a diversity of American southern music - ranging from country, blues, old-time and folk to R&B, rock'n'roll and rockabilly. I regularly present my research results about artists, labels, shows and also give guest writers a chance to publish their texts here on occasion.

Tops Rock & Roll!
Tops was a label founded by the Tops Music Enterprises in the early 1950s in Los Angeles and had success with their cheap versions of the hits-of-the-day. In 1960, Tops was sold and the new owner discontinued the label in the mid-1960s. Some of the Tops recordings were actually recorded by the Starday company and issued on their budget imprint Dixie. The masters were later leased to Tops. Hope you enjoy it!
