Tucked deep into the wilds of Wisconsin’s Dairyland, Cuca Records was the custom recording and pressing outfit for the Badger state. From its opening in 1959 to the end in 1973, Jim Kirchstein recorded nearly 2000 sides ranging from polka and gospel to country and R&B, and issued over 1000 45s on his Sara, Night Owl, Polka Dot, Top Gun, Psalms, Lucky Leprechaun, Jolly Dutchmen, Sounds of Wisconsin, Age of Aquarius, Banana, Citation, Butternut, Dee Jay, and American imprints.
In the early 1970s Cuca’s open door policy inspired Midwestern gospel artists to make the trek to the Sauk City, Wisconsin recording studio. We’ve assembled 15 raw harmonies and tortured churners from the coveted Psalms sub-label, sourced from the original master tapes.
