Bullet Records was one of the first, and initially one of the most successful of the post World War II independent record labels. The venture was started in 1945 by Jim Bulliet and partners Wally Fowler (a musician) and C.V. Hitchcock (a businessman). The company ambitiously intended to record Pop, Country Music, Gospel and Rhythm & Blues. In 1946, Francis Craig's recording of 'Near You' became the biggest selling record of that year. W.C. 'Red' Wortham had been handling promotion for the label for some time. He became more involved in the company in 1949 and began producing recording sessions and securing outside master recordings for the company as well. The company was having more and more success with their blues and r&b releases and consequently paid more attention to promoting these records. By 1950, Red Wortham had gone into partnership with Jim Bulliet in the Delta and J-B labels. They concentrated almost exclusively on rhythm & blues. The Bullet label released its last records in 1952 and folded a little over a year later.
