The Clintone Record Company (or ClinTone Records) was a record label founded in 1970 Jesse Lewis and record promoter Clinton Moon. Clintone was associated with Showtime Productions, Inc. which managed talent for the label and promoted concert appearances. Clintone made a deal with Atlantic Records for national distribution.
Sam Dees wrote and produced most of Clintone’s output, and Rozetta Johnson was the company’s first breakout talent. Her recording of Dees’ “A Woman’s Way” was Clintone’s first single and reached #28 on Billboard’s R&B chart.
