Camp Records

Source and complete archive of recordings.

 "Almost nothing is known about the mysterious 60's record label Camp Records. They released an album and 10 45 rpm records of gay parody songs, most done with effeminate voices . . . . [T]hey were issued in the early 60's, as they all appeared in an ad in the gay magazine Vagabond, dated 1965. The address on the album record jacket was PO Box 3213, Hollywood, California, and it credited all selections to 'Different Music Co, Hollywood.'

The artists singing most of the songs were uncredited, or with names obviously made up, like Byrd E. Bath and B. Bubba."
