Windsor Records Company was founded in 1950 by Doc Alumbaugh in Temple City, California. Winsdor was one of the first Square Dance Record Companies. Alumbaugh hired LA's best session men for his recordings, and he used the top recording facilities and engineers of the day. The first Windsor singles were instrumental hoedowns, these were followed by singing calls which were popular tunes of the day done square dance style, the calling intertwined with the song lyrics. Among other innovations, Windsor was the first to release singles with the called version of a tune on one side and the instrumental on the other, a practice that continues today.
