Abbott Records was Fabor Robison's first record label, paid for by the owner of Abbott's Drug Store and started to put out the recordings of Johnny Horton. Robison was a great talent scout, who found not only Johhny Horton but also Jim Reeves, Jim Ed and Maxine Brown, the De Castro Sisters and even Hall of Fame guitarist James Burton. Many of his early finds were part of the Louisiana Hayride, the Shreveport nationally broadcast weekly CBS network country show that played a perennially second fiddle to the Grand Ole Opry. Robison went out on his own with Fabor and Radio Records, which have their own entries.
