    Biography :

    Richie Records is from Wilmington, DE owned by a local record producer and rock's roll promoter Vincent Rago and named after his son Richie. The label started in late 1960 I believe and was still around in 1967. Some releases were distributed by Roulette and Scepter records.

    Teddy Henry                                                                                                  

    In 1961 Vincent Rago helped Teddy and the Continentals cut their first single.  Rago’s greatest success was with the Continentals  who had a national hit –– on the Bubbling Under chart –– with “Ev’rybody Pony,” which hit #101 in September 1961. but the flip side “Tick Tick Tock” is the side most aficionados prefer.

    Teddy Henry, the lead singer of the Continentals, was a student at Conrad High School at the time, and recorded two more records with the Continentals, but by 1964 the Continentals broke up and he recorded a final solo record on Ritchie in 1965 as Teddy Continental.
