This Buddah subsidiary was formed by Jeffrey Katz And Jerry Kasenetz, the production team (and
sometimes songwriting team) behind most of the bubblegum hits of Buddah. Super K ran for one year
only (1969) and was not very successful (to say the least); their main claim to fame was to have
released the last album by the Shadows of Knight (a garage band famous for their hit cover version of
"Gloria" in 1966, but with only the lead singer remaining from the original lineup). Surprisingly, the
version of "Shake" on the Shadows of Knight album is a different version from the 45, and much inferior.
The label is black with white lettering : "SUPER K" is written is stylized large yellow letters on a pink and green background at the top of the label. The following text is written in small print in the form of an arc at the bottom of the label: "EXCLUSIVELY DISTRIBUTED BY BUDDAH RECORDS - 1650 BROADWAY N.Y.C." with a small Buddah logo (i.e. the famous "Shiva" statue) in between the words "Buddah" and "Records".
All releases were stereo only.
