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.

Toward the end of the 1950s, Red Wortham and Jim Bulliet decided to revive the Bullet label. It was a modest endeavor though and Bulliet soon tired of it, leaving Red to soldier on alone. By the mid 1970s Bullet had become a custom label, willing to release a record by anyone who had the money to pay for the privilege of recording for the once great company. Bulliet died in 1988 without ever getting the recognition he so deserved. But Red Wortham sold the Bullet, Delta and Sur-Speed masters to Bluesland Productions in 1996 and lived to see his legacy reissued on compact disc. He passed away in 2002.
