About Select-O-Hits:

Select-O-Hits  is owned by Sam W. Phillips and John
Phillips, was co-founded in 1960 by their father, Tom Phillips, and
uncle, Sam Phillips, the legendary founder of Sun Records. Tom Phillips
began his career in music as Jerry Lee Lewis road manager for a number
of years. He had invested all of his savings into an upcoming 1958
European tour when news of Lewis marriage to his 13 year-old cousin hit
the front pages. Lewis career came to a sudden, although temporary,
halt. The tour was cancelled, and Tom was broke. Sam helped him by
giving him a job in the Sun Records warehouse and allowing Tom to live
with him while his family stayed behind in Mobile, Alabama. Eventually,
Tom saved enough money to send for his family in 1960. Tom was not
satisfied with running the warehouse, so with the help of his wife,
Lucille, he opened a small record store and one-stop that provided
small, predominantly black-owned record stores with everything from
phonograph needles to display racks. In the mid-1970s, Select-O-Hits
began to concentrate more on distributing and less on retail and
one-stops. The retail store closed in the mid-1980s, and the one-stop
followed a few years later. Select-O-Hits has formed a number of
successful record labels, such as Avenue, Icehouse, SOH, Brutal Records,
Basix Music, Blues Works and Prophet Entertainment. In 1997 half of the
company was sold to Malaco Records of Jackson, Mississippi. While all
genres of music are represented in the family of labels Select-O-Hits
distributes, Rap, Blues, Soul and Gospel are still the largest portion
of the business. Today with sales offices and staff in Memphis, Atlanta,
Nashville, Philadelphia, New York, Los Angeles, Sacramento, Miami,
Chicago, Houston and Seattle, Select-O-Hits is one of the largest
independent record distributors in the country, providing services for
over 300 independent vendors to all key US music traditional “brick and
mortar” retailers and digital media sites. For more information visit
