The Ft. Lauderdale band COVENTRY signed with Hit Records International in 1970, but it doesn’t appear anything was released. Other artists signed to Hyperbolic/Hit in 1970 or 1971 – according to Billboard Magazine – were Foxx, Mario Librizzi (formerly of the Tassels), and Pershing Arbogast. In addition, a group named Snow (with former members of the Hard Knocks) recorded for Hyperbolic in 1972, but it’s not clear if anything was actually issued.
Phil Milstein lists a bunch of Hyperbolic and Hit song-poem demos on his American Song-Poem Music Archives, an essential and endlessly captivating site. This is one group of labels whose discography will probably never be complete.

The same song that The Minority cut -- but is it the same version?

Many more label discographies can be found in the book Savage Lost: Florida Garage Bands, The ’60s & Beyond. If you’re interested in Florida garage band and soul music labels such as Paris Tower, Tener, Tropical, Dade, Marlin, Gulfstream, or Trip Universal, the book is for you. While Hyperbolic was mentioned several times in Savage Lost, I never got around to compiling a discography, an oversight that I am finally able to correct.

    I have just found

    The Sunn – Walk On By / How does I Feel on Hiperbolic Records. (with a I not a Y)

    It has no record label number. Matrix No is – 0697

    In the same pile of records was the one sided Joe Fisher on I Love You Records. so I’m sure its the same label.

    here is a link to both sides https://youtu.be/PBYwiTe_IHM

    .Hi – This is Mike Rodgers, of Hyperbolic Records, Ft; Lauderdale Fl.
    Loved the articles – what a great job you did gathering all this info.
    My partner, and oldest friend, John Archer, just passed away in August.
    Your work is much appreciated! Thank You!

  1. Hey folks, this is Rick Shepard. So sorry to hear about John’s passing. He used to work with my dad at AT&T back in the 60′ and early 70’s all those years ago. That’s how I came to know John and then met Mike when me and the bandmates went to setup a recording date back in June 1972. Our band’s name is CASE and the album we recorded in one long session on Saturday June 17, 1972, is Taking Time. Finding this web site was by coincidence or Divine Intervention because I am in the process of creating a Web Site and Page dedicated to CASE, the record we made and subsequent music that was destined to be recorded. It is for our 50th Anniversary. I plan to reach out to Mike after I finish this and if you are interested, I can send a picture of our record label from the album.
