History: According to American Record Labels and Companies: An Encyclopedia (Alan Sutton & Kurt Nauck, Mainspring Press, 2000), this label was manufactured by the Starr Piano Co. (makers of the Gennett label) during the early 1920s. Starr made recordings for a wide range of clientele, including the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) organization. The song title here, 'Long Klucker,' refers to "a white supremacist who hates gays, Jews, Catholics and blacks." (Urban Dictionary). Label scan courtesy of collector Ken Hagelthorn of the U.S.A.
