This chapter presents an excerpt from a chapter in Randy McNutt’s Guitar Towns: A Journey to the Crossroads of Rock and Roll, titled “Shreveport: Susie-Q”; the section focused mainly on Stan Lewis. Lewis began his career in record sales and distribution with the opening of Stan’s Record Shop in Shreveport in 1948, and, in the early 1950s, began a highly successful mail-order operation that lasted for over a decade. He expanded his business interests in 1963 when he founded the Jewel label, soon followed with the imprints Paula and Ronn, and again extended his small empire in 1968 when he purchased the masters of Chicago blues label Cobra Records.
