Decca Label-Before This Time Another Year-The Jubalaires-1944 Capitol Label-It Ain't What You Want...-The Jubalaires-1949
Above Left: This is The Jubalaires first record. As their name suggests, all of their eight Decca releases (1944-50, but recorded 1944-46) were gospel singing.

Above Right: After leaving Decca, The Jubalaires continued to record for a major label... this time Capitol. This is their second Capitol release of seven (1949-51) plus two more backing up Johnny Smith (1949-50). Most of their Capitol records were "popular" songs (non-gospel).

As The Jubilaires, they had several releases on the King/Queen labels (1947-50).
