They checked out the radio and found that a local deejay named Jerry Blavat was not only popular, but played the doo wop and group vocal oldies they knew from New York. They founded a record store called the Record Museum, located in a small storefront at Chestnut Street in downtown Philadelphia. The store, like Times Square, specialized in oldies, and bought ads on Blavat's radio programs.
Their albums started out as oldies compilations, many of them simulated radio shows by Jerry Blavat and other oldies deejays. Both the store and the label flourished. From there, The Record Museum opened a slew of additional stores — ultimately 23 stores in all — and Lost Nite became one of the foremost oldies reissue labels in the country, specializing in doo-wops and group vocals.
Jerry Greene established a new label, Collectables, inwhich reissued some of the Lost Nite collections, particularly when CDs became popular. That label has since become the foremost reissue label in the business. As a reissue label, Lost Nite was not particularly concerned with stereo recordings, and for that reason, most of their albums were mostly or totally rechanneled until quite late by industry standards.
Neither did they particularly care much about sound quality, as most of the albums were mastered from records, as you can hear surface noise even on a mint album. Even after the changeover to Collectables, their early CDs often were riddled with surface noise and other artifacts. In the early s, however, Collectables started working with reissue producer Walter DeVenne, and their sound quality improved dramatically, including stereo content.
Today Collectables sells their product over the internet at www. The original Lost Nite 45 label far left was pink with no graphics. Lost Nite returned to a pink label in for their red vinyl 10" albums in the Collectors Limited Edition Series near leftwhich were sold in generic sleeves with a sticker that had the group's name on it. The pressings were limited to each, and the albums were individually numbered on another sticker on the front of the jacket.
The Lost Nite label for most of the album issues was yellow with black print, with the lamppost logo down the left side of the label.

Ford herself has said that her involvement with him during that period was strictly personal and that he had no involvement in the half-finished album. The honorary degree came "in recognition of his contribution to the world of popular music", and recognized "his role as one of the founding fathers of heavy metal music and his status as one of the industry's most influential figures", the university said.
Iommi holds dual British - Italian citizenship, acquiring Italian citizenship due to being born to an Italian mother. In earlyIommi was diagnosed with the early stages of lymphoma for which he underwent successful treatment. Black Sabbath's tour dates were arranged so that Iommi was free to return to the UK once every six weeks to have an antibody administered. According to a report in Rolling Stone magazine from 9 DecemberIommi revealed that he was due to have an operation to remove a lump from his throat.
In an early interview with the UK radio show Planet RockIommi explained that the lump wasn't cancerous. Iommi said in that he believed in God and was a Catholicbut that he had not attended church services since childhood.
In his autobiography, Tony writes that his parents were Catholics but weren't regular churchgoers. He continues, 'I hardly go to church either. I wouldn't know what to do there. I actually do believe in a God, but I don't feel that I have to press the point. Tony Iommi is widely considered to be one of the greatest rock guitarists of all time. InMetal Hammer magazine ranked him number 1 on the poll of the "Riff Lords", praising his "highly distinctive style of fretsmanship that's economical yet crushingly effective".
Inreaders of Guitar World ranked Iommi the 7th-greatest rock guitarist of all time. Iommi has won a number of awards. Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull has said: "Tony managed to turn his physical impairment around into something that makes him one of the guitar legends — if not for his dexterity of playing but at least for the fact that his contribution to rock music is a unique one".
Furthermore, Iommi is recognised by many as the main creator of heavy metal music. Brian May of Queen considers him "the true father of heavy metal",  Eddie Van Halen states that "without Tony, heavy metal wouldn't exist. He is the creator of heavy! He has been credited as the forerunner of other styles: Martin Popoff defines him "the godfather of stoner rock ";  Jeff Kitts and Brad Tolinski of Guitar World assert that " grungegoththrashindustrialdeathdoom None of it would exist without Tony Iommi".
Judas PriestIron MaidenScorpionsMetallicaSlayerPantera and essentially every metal band can be traced to the musical framework found in Iommi compositions".
Iommi's deep and heavy sound was partly born out of necessity—his "revolutionary signature sound" being the result of the accident and the subsequent downtuning by three semitones. He said that his "extreme volume" was likewise necessary, "because we were fed up with people talking over us while we were playing. Tony Iommi . Built in Birmingham by luthier John Diggins sometime between andthe guitar was first used for overdubs on the 'Heaven and Hell' album and later became one of Iommi's main guitars.

He had two more built for him. One was made to the same specifications of his first Jaydee SG with a red finish. Another one was made and used during the Born Again era, which can be seen on the music videos for "Trashed" and "Zero the Hero.
The guitar became Iommi's main instrument after his white Stratocaster's neck pick-up failed during the recording of Black Sabbath's self-titled album. The guitar was built by the Gibson Custom Shop in Nashville after Iommi's specifications and finished in The guitar features a neck with 24 frets and four control knobs, of which only two are active much like his old Jaydee Custom guitar.
He is asking that anyone with information or leads let them know. He is offering a reward for its safe return. A stock Epiphone SG signature model in black finish fitted with P pick-ups which is a version of the Gibson P pick-up designed to fit into existing humbucker housings. A regular left-handed version of the SG fitted with two extra frets to give Iommi the full two octaves which he prefers.
The guitar is equipped with his signature pick-up. Iommi was the first guitarist to have a signature pick-up designed and built by Gibson. He also has another model fitted with a Floyd Rose floating tremolo. Iommi played a Fender Stratocaster that was spraypainted white by Iommi and his father during the early days with Black Sabbath.
However, the neck pick-up malfunctioned during the recording of their first album, so Iommi quickly turned to his backup Gibson SG to finish the record. Currently Iommi owns two Stratocasters, one of which has been modified with his signature pick-up in the bridge position. Custom built for Iommi by St. It was used on the 13 album and for the tour.

I put money into a company because I couldn't get guitars built the way I wanted them. I had to prove it to the manufacturers. So I put money into John Birch guitars, and he built my guitars.
I had to prove it worked. All of this was done by experimenting and trial and error. I paid for that myself in the early days to show it could be done. And I paid for all these companies to get the benefits nowadays.
Back then they all said it couldn't be done. I also used locking nuts years and years ago without a tremolo, before locking nuts were the norm. It was a John Birch guitar.
We only sold one, and Roy Orbison bought it. I came up with that years ago and the first one was made for me to use in the studio. At the time I had a lot of problems tuning guitars because of the neck and the light strings on the Gibson. I decided to come up with a guitar that I could use in the studio with different sounds so that I didn't have to keep changing guitars. You could slot a pickup in it and get a Fender sound, then slot a different pickup in it and get a Gibson sound. That was the idea.
I did use it for a while, but they were too expensive to mass-produce. Main article: Black Sabbath discography. Guitar World. Music Week. UBM Information Ltd.
