Back in the 1950s, a young Bronx, NY raised veteran of WWII who was a music enthusiast happened to come across a demo left in a record store made by five high school buddies. Already an enthusiast of R&B (formerly called "Race and Sepia"), he was captured by their sound; they called themselves the Rivileers and the song was "A Thousand Stars.' One thing led to another, and soon he was in a rented recording studio, supervising them in a recording session, barely knowing what he was doing. Eventually, more recordings were produced, and Sol Rabinowitz was on his way to shepherd several musical groups into making records for Baton Records. This website shares the music and tells the story of how much of the records came to be.

Below are several hit tracks from the Baton Story CD, a compilation of the DooWop genre that Rabinowitz recorded. You'll find several genres of music by clicking " MUSIC in the navigation bar (and click on each button to hear more clips of each); and you can learn about the history of Baton Records in STORY. Currently, we only have CDs available of the Baton Story, but in the future, all tracks will be downloadable.
