Give It Up For The Spirit Of 68!

Wow, this one made the dog and I get up, march around the room, down the stairs out the door and over to the neighbors for a beer, leaving of course only 98 bottles on the wall.

Looks like this is Zeno Gross' label and Friendly Music his pubishing company. At one point he also owned the MPI label. All were based in Columbia Mississippi where he was a long time resident.

One of the more interesting things I found while looking him up is an article in a 1953 BIllboard that mentions he was renaiming his band the "Cancer Crusaders" and embarking on a non-profit tour of Mississippi to support the Cancer Society. Guess even back then he considered himself one of "The Other Ninety Nine" Good for him.

Zeno Gross probably did have a hand in running the Thunder Label, A/K/A Thunder International Records sometime during the 1960's, however, by the time Thunder Records had it's best known release (1978's "The Day The Beat Stopped" by Ral Donner) Felton Jarvis had taken over by that point The label seemingly folded in 1980 with Jarvis' sudden death at age 46.
