From the 1940s through the 1970s, Cincinnati, Dayton, and Hamilton were major national recording centers for bluegrass. In Cincinnati, E.T. “Bucky” Herzog recorded Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs’s “Foggy Mountain Breakdown.” Syd Nathan’s King Records recorded Jimmy Martin and Bob Osborne, Reno and Smiley, the Stanley Brothers, Moore and Napier, and Ralph Stanley. Carl Burkhardt’s Gateway Studios recorded Jim and Jesse, Red Allen, and Sonny Osborne’s earliest sessions. Rusty York’s Jewel Studios and record label in Cincinnati produced numerous secular and sacred bluegrass recordings. In the 1970s Lou Ukelson’s Vetco label in Cincinnati, William M. Jones’s Melody and Pine Tree labels in Hamilton, and Jack Lynch’s Jalyn Records in Dayton released important recordings that have had lasting impact.
