The Record Men #7

Herman Lubinsky founder of Savoy Records

'There's no doubt everybody hated Herman Lubinsky. If he messed with you, you were messed. At the same time, some of those people ‒ many of them Newark's top singers and musicians ‒ would never have been exposed to records if he didn't do what he did. Except for Lubinsky, all the hot little numbers, like Buddy Johnson's "Cherry" would have been lost. The man may have been hated, but he saved a lot of our history for us and for future generations.'
