In 1962, Logsdon launched his own label (Jimmie Logsdon Sings) – 6 tracks EPs – and issued three of them, prominently religious songs, but also some Hank Williams classics, lesser known songs. He was backed by unknown musicians, probably Cincinnati session men : rhythm, steel, bass, and his songs are on a par with the tunes he had already cut some years before.

The Jewel album
He recorded a rockabilly album for Jewel Records in Cincinnati in 1981, and it was released worldwide in 1983. This album “Now and Then I Think of the 50’s” (Jewel 83021) had 15 sides and featured his friend Rusty York playing guitar and harmonica in addition to producing the L.P. The album sold well in Europe and is a collectors item there even today. Alas, it suffered a lack of feeling and spontaneity, although it brought back several older songs and no doubt, those he had liked from other artists during his own career. He has been a prolific song writer during his career and has had many stars record his songs including Johnny Horton, Kenny Price, Woody Herman, Carl Perkins and others.
