The Gatur Records label was owned by Ulis Gaines and Wilson Turbinton. The name of the label represents a fusion of the first few letters of each owner's last name. The label office was on N. Robertson Street in New Orleans.

The song sampled by Bulljun for the track
"Sho' Nuff"

Oct 26 2005 4:21AM by Bo Custer
This track was either closely copied or sampled (unsure because of quality) by Greyboy on the "Freestylin'" album. I'm not sure which because of the quality of the clip. Not sure which track exactly (can't find my disk), think perhaps "On The Strip."

This one's also on the "Midwest Funk" Comp. From Now-Again records.

Jan 8 2005 3:34PM by Russ Alexander
Recorded in 1967, only a few original 45s were pressed, and it was the sole release on the Soul Shake label. It gathered little, exposure outside of western Michigan until 40 years later when it would become one of the rarest and most desirable funk 45s. The hatch can be found on the Vital Organs Comp put out by Fine Wine, also rereleased on Funk45 Label(Jazzman).
