SPOTLIGHT ON THE SIX TEENS - PART ONE
"A Casual Look"/"Teen Age Promise"
by The Six Teens
on Flip 315
released in 1956
Above: June 1956 clipping promoting The Six Teens' first record. Flip, a Los Angeles label started in 1955, was owned by Max Freitag. He had experience in the recording industry, helping Lew Chudd form the Imperial label in 1948. The Flip label design had a look similar to the apparently unrelated Aladdin label, also located in Los Angeles. Both labels show the more glamorous location "Hollywood, California" as home.
