Pine Tree Records

The Pine Tree label was started in 1964 in Indianapolis by the Bluegrass Blackjacks as a vehicle to release records by their group. After three singles, the label was sold to Melody Records in Hamilton, which eventually released approximately 15 more singles and in excess of 50 LPs by a variety of bluegrass artists and groups. Probably the most significant release was Ramblin’ Guitar, which was Larry Sparks’ first LP and served to kick off his career as a solo artist after he left Ralph Stanley’s Clinch Mountain Boys.
