Private Stock Album Discography
By Patrice Eyries, Mike Callahan, David Edwards and Randy Watts
Last update: March 9, 2010

Frankie Valli Private Stock Records was founded in New York in 1974 by Larry Uttal, who had previously run the Madison label and went on to make Bell Records a huge success. The label released a wide variety of music, but leaned toward middle-of-the-road pop. It was located at 40 West 57th Street, New York, NY 10019. The UK office was located at 32 Old Burlington Street, London W1, England.

The first star for the label was Frankie Valli, whose easy listening "My Eyes Adored You" [Private Stock 45, 003] released in October, 1974, stuck around on the charts forever (actually, it just seemed that way; it was six months), finally making #1 for one week before dropping like a rock. Valli followed that up with "Swearin' to God" [Private Stock 45,021] which reached #6 the next spring, and a remake of Ruby & the Romantics' "Our Day Will Come" [Private Stock 45,043] which reached #11 late in 1975. Continuing with the remake approach, Valli then recorded "Fallen Angel" [Private Stock 45,074] a British tune by a soft-rock trio calling themselves Rogue (Guy Fletcher — noted songwriter, later a member of Roxy music, and uncle of the Guy Fletcher who was a member of Dire Straits and the Notting Hillbillies — Al Hodge, and John Hodkinson, with Doug Flett co-writing the songs with Fletcher). Even though Epic released the Rogue version about the same time over here as Valli's version, the name recognition carried Frankie's disc to #36, easily outdistancing the original. Frankie Valli added two more minor chart hits by 1977, then signed with Warner-Curb.

Flash Cadillac & the Continental Kids Frankie Valli was actually the closest thing to a consistent chartmaker that Private Stock had. In fact, Private Stock went through a bewildering number of known artists and artists with one hit, or one or two almost-hits, or exactly no hits. The artists who released singles on Private Stock without ever charting, even on the Bubbling Under charts, could fill up a sizeable "who's who" list: Gary Paxton, Paul Jones, Wayne Carson, Dee Dee Warwick, Herman's Hermits, Nancy Sinatra, Trini Lopez, Tony Wine, Phyllis Hyman, Robert Knight, Cilla Black, Susan Taylor (of the Pozo-Seco Singers), Bobby Russell, Jay Black (of Jay & the Americans), the Shepherd Sisters, Mel Carter, Tarney & Spencer, First Class, Blondie (yes, THAT Blondie), the Troggs, Lee Hazlewood, 5000 Volts, Tommy Hunt, Clint Holmes, Rod Stewart, Essra Mohawk, Casey Kelly, the Brotherhood of Man, Morton Downey, Jr. (!?), and Keith Barbour. The label also released a non-chart but memorable single ("Big Noise From Winnetka") by Spaghetti Head [Private Stock 014], a studio group made up of Les Hurdle and Clem Cattini. Cattini was drummer for the Tornados and had a fabulous career as a session drummer, appearing on no less than 44 #1 records.

Those whose Private Stock singles charted but never reached the top-40 include Innervision, Terry Jacks, Vicki Lawrence, Peter Skellern, the Purple Reign, U.S. 1, the Band of the Black Watch, Shad O'Shea (who later owned Fraternity Records), James Darren, David Parton, Brownsville Station, Robert Gordon with Link Wray, Billy Joe Royal, Rupert Holmes, Carolyne Bernier, and Cissy Houston.

Those that did make the top-40 were unlikely to be top-40 repeaters. These included Austin Roberts ("Rocky" [Private Stock 45,020] 7/75; #9), Flash Cadillac & the Continental Kids ("Did You Boogie (With Your Baby)" [Private Stock 45,079] 8/76; #29), Starbuck ("Moonlight Feels Right" [Private Stock 45,039] 4/76; #3; "Everybody Be Dancin'" [Private Stock 45,144] 4/77; #38), Walter Murphy ("A Fifth of Beethoven" [Private Stock 45,073] 5/76; #1), Cyndi Grecco ("Making Our Dreams Come True" [Private Stock 45,086] 7/76; #25), David Soul ("Don't Give Up On Us" [Private Stock 45, 129] 1/77; #1), Samantha Sang ("Emotion" [Private Stock 45,178] 11/77; #3), and the Michael Zager Band ("Let's All Chant" [Private Stock 45,184] 2/78; #36).

Peter Lemongello & Friend And then there was Peter Lemongello, an enterprising lounge singer who, starting in early January, 1976, bombarded New York City's TV stations with a 17-week barrage of 70-100 commercials a week for his self-produced double-LP set Love 76. By the end of May he had sold 43,000 copies via telemarketing (according to a Time Magazine story on May 31 - claims of his selling a million copies seem somewhat exaggerated.) For the 43,000 copies (at $6.98 each), it cost $187,000 for the TV campaign, grossing a little over $100,000 after paying for the ad campaign. It was about this time that Lemongello signed with Private Stock, who issued one album and a couple of singles. None of these charted. Lemongello went on singing in concerts and clubs, eventually landing in Branson, Missouri, where all the oldies seem to congregate, much to the delight of their fans. Today, in addition to his fan base, he is unfortunately remembered as the person who made the "infomercial" popular.

Larry Uttal shut the label down near the end of 1978, moved to London, and went into the film business. He later moved back to New York, where he went into the travel business. Larry Uttal died in Manhattan in November, 1993. His son Jai Uttal noted that although he has control of the label's catalogue after the death of his father, he has no tapes or even vinyl, and has no idea where the master tapes are today. Most CD reissues have been dubbed from vinyl. Reports that the label was sold to EMI in 1978 seem to be incorrect, since EMI hasn't reissued the catalogue to any extent. What did happen was Blondie's contract was bought by Chrysalis, at that time run by EMI in the UK. EMI Records was also the manufacturer and distributor for Private Stock Records in Europe.

The first Private Stock label (far left) was brown with black print, the center being a medium brown fading to light brown at the edges. Promotional copies (near left) were grey with black print, with "PROMOTIONAL COPY" under the title and artist. Both had the label logo at the left of the center hole, and "PRIVATE STOCK RECORDS, LTD., New York, N.Y." bending around the bottom edge of the label. This label was used for the 2000 series and the 5000 series, and for the first four albums in the 7000 series.
The single-LP 5000 series (far left) used the first label, but promotional copies neglected to include the artist's name. The first Peter Lemongello 45 (near left) was issued on yellow (lemon?) vinyl as a promo copy.
The Flash Cadillac & the Continental Kids' single "Did You Boogie (With Your Baby)" was issued in stereo on separate commercial 45s either with Wolfman Jack's overdubbed voice, or without, with the label indicating which. A promotional 45 was issued (both sides mono) with one side "with Wolfman Jack" and the other "without Wolfman Jack" (near left). The brown color scheme for commercial records and grey for promo copies was used for both albums and 45s.
Starting in January, 1978, the label changed to a full color (predominantly blue) label showing the New York City skyline (including the twin towers) from the water. Commercial copies were like those shown at far left, while promotional copies had an overprint of "Promotional Copy - Not for Sale" across the buildings, as shown at near left.
Frankie Valli's "Special Limited Edition" eight-song EP had those words above the title (far left). Private Stock also issued 12" disco singles on the Splash label (near left).
