Dooto Records

Originally a doo-wop label named Dootone Records, became one of the nation’s most prolific black comedy labels in the US in the 1950’s and sixties. Around 1959 the company had it’s height point with great sleeves for the king of black comedy Redd Foxx as The Side-Splitter and others. Nice lettering on titles like Stag Party by Allan Drew and The Tickled Soul Of … or The Whole Of Hattie Noel. Later other labels like Laff Records tried to copy the directness of the sleeves.
