Loma Album Discography
By David Edwards, Patrice Eyries, and Mike Callahan
Last update: July 25, 2004

Loma Records was a Warner Brothers subsidiary run by Bob Krasnow. The original office in 1964 overlooked Loma Avenue, hence the label name. It was started as an entry into the R&B market. The label lasted until 1968.

The label had some interesting artists, but most of them didn't make it to LP status until the release of the two-CD set in 1995 called The Best of Loma Records. Several of James Brown's backup group, the Famous Flames, recorded solo efforts for Loma. There were also hard-hitting soul vocals by J.J. Jackson, Linda Jones and Lorraine Ellison. Ike and Tina Turner had some tunes on the label (one of the seemingly dozens of labels for whom they recorded). There were Philadelphians Ben Aiken and the Three Degrees. They had the Enchanters and Lonnie Youngblood. And the Olympics had the original version on Loma of "Good Lovin'," which the Young Rascals snapped up. But apparently, it wasn't enough to survive, as they made very little impact on the best seller charts, and Warner Brothers eventually lost interest.
