These Columbus labels were run by Harrison Lee Foster. He was from Coshocton and started DoLeJo (apparently based on the names of family members) in 1967. The first DoLeJo 45 was by the Shadows who were from Coshocton. He released a couple more 45s on DoLeJo.
In 1971 he started the Kare label, part of his Summit Enterprises operation on Oakland Park Avenue in Columbus. Kare released a number of 45s and a few LPs as listed. The most interesting releases were the 45 by Joy and the November Children LP. Joy was a California - relocated from Connecticut - band that included future star Michael Bolton, then using his given name of Michael Bolotin. The Novermber Children LP, which includes both sides of the Joy 45, was the soundtrack to a long gone typical early 70s biker/youth exploitation movie that was produced by Michael Z. Gordon in Los Angeles. Through unknown means, the LP was released by Foster even though there doesn't seem to be any Columbus area connections. The other Kare records are by local artists.
The 45s by the Triangles on Kare are recordings by Copley, Jeffries, and Reid. The Platters and Chuck Berry Collections are medleys and same recordings that are on the LP. We don't know why the band name was changed. The Nick Liberty LP is a Martial Arts/self defense spoken word instructional record.
