RAULS MUSIC ANNOUNCES FORMATION -1980'S
Photo 10 Page reveals a period prior to the launching of MTV in which a talent vacuum was occuring sending record executives scrambling in search of discovering trendsetting new artists.
Photo 10 Page continues in the progression of events from the previous page as the Disco trend would eventually decline from the musical charts. Pictured above is the formation of Rauls-Williams Productions in 1980 as an agency for discovering new talent. J.R. Williams was previously with Steve Cropper's TMI Recording studio and a talented sound engineer and producer who teamed-up with Phillip to sign new acts and record their compositions. Rauls-Williams Productions, which would later evolve into a single entity and renamed to Rauls Music, would shop recording artists' master recordings to major record labels in lieu of receiving national promotion and distribution agreements. In addition to it's production and publishing function, Rauls Music also provided independent marketing servies thru the mid-80's as displayed throughout this page.
