King Noodle Records

We started our label in 1980, using recordings made in 1976 & 1977 plus two new cuts made that year to fill out the EP pictured to the right. 120 of the band's fans helped finance the pressing by buying tickets to see Okie Doke perform at a local winery, also getting h'ors d'ouvres and the winery tour in the bargain. The eponymous KN1001EP actually arrived from the pressing plant Jan. 2, 1981. Scroll down and check out our products! Left is a link to the live video of "Snake Charmin' Baby"- the version on the record has the talents of additional musicians Biff Bracht (piano), Bill Thurman (lead guitar) and the Okettes (backing vocals). There are still a small quantity of those EPs left in stock!
