Original Sound Records was founded in the early 1950s by KPOP deejay Art Laboe. It began as a small label that specialized in compiling and re-releasing "oldies" R&B and rock 'n' roll songs. The label pioneered the concept of reissuing older pop and rock hits, and sold millions of "Oldies But Goodies" compilation albums. The label's biggest self-recorded hit as a single was Teen Beat by drummer Sandy Nelson, reaching #4 on Billboard in 1959.
