Above: Label image for Majestic 1249 recorded in December 1947. The Harmonaires had two records released on this label, all four sides recorded in the same session. In between was one release by Deek Watson as "Deek Watson And The Brown Dots" (Majestic 1244). The Majestic label had a great roster of talent, but of special interest to group harmony fans were The Deep River Boys backing Thelma Carpenter (1945) and The Jones Brothers (1946).
