Label discontinued
Minit Records was founded in New Orleans by Joe Banashak and Larry McKinley early in 1959.
Responsible for most of the hits on Minit was Allen Toussaint, who wrote, played piano, arranged, and produced most of the music. When Toussaint left the company in 1963, the hits dried out and the label was sold to Imperial Records.
