Malaco Records was founded in 1962 by Tommy Couch, Mitchell Malouf, and Wolf Stephenson, initially as a booking agency. In 1967, the company opened a recording studio in a building that remains the home of Malaco. Between 1968 and 1970, Capitol Records released six singles. Revenue from record releases was minimal, and Malaco survived doing jingles, booking bands, promoting concerts, and renting the studio for custom projects. In 1970,  Malaco released King Floyd's "Groove me" (CH 435) on its own Chimneyville label. When "Groove Me" started a wildfire of radio play and sales, Atlantic picked the record up for distribution.
