    Biography :

    Penny Records was part of the Met Music Record Shop operation owned by Maurice Alpert. Met Music, located at 328 East Fifty-eighth Street, under the elevated stop, was practically an institution on the South Side. When South Siders needed the latest  “jams,” they made it a habit to head to the Met. The Penny label was active twice  first in 1962 when two releases were put  out, and then during 1966–70 when ten releases were put on the Penny label and  about the same number on the sister Nickel label.”

    The two 1962 releases, produced and arranged by Johnny Pate, were an instrumental by the Joy Rockers  and a vocal group by the Creations called "We're In Love" b/w "Lady Luck" both written by members George Madison and Perry Cobb . Other members of the Chicago vocal group were James Bright, Charles Lindsay,  and Louis Williams. It will be their only single and  got some play on local radio, but sales were not substantial enough to sustain Alpert's interest in the label.
