Abner Album Discography
by Mike Callahan and David Edwards
Last update: December 15, 2006

The Abner label was obviously named for Ewart Abner, then the head of Vee-Jay, although the Brackens owned the label. There are two Abner labels; chronological order is not known. One is black with silver printing, "Abner" above and slightly to the right of the center hole. To the left of "Abner" is a hunting falcon on a glove. The other label is red with silver printing, graphics are identical to the black label. All three of the Abner albums were also eventually reissued with the standard Vee-Jay label with the Abner numbers in an Abner jacket. The Dee Clark albums were both issued in stereo, while the Jerry Butler issue was apparently in mono only.
