Abner Spector, composer,
producer and president of Tuff
Records established the label in
the early sixties.  He scored hits
with The Corsairs and The
Jaynetts.  The label was
distributed by Chess out of
Chicago.  Today Abner Spector
has re-energized Tuff,
recreating a stronger
relationship with his original
artists and friends.  

The most predominate reunion
is with Jimmie Raye.  In 1964
he released Look At Me Girl,
Crying b/w with I Tried.  The
recording received recognition
from Billboard, bubbling under
The Top 100 Charts.

Tuff has always been a
competitor in the music world.  
Tuff E Nuff to go the distance.  
  A Tuff Artist contained the unique originality to create competitive music throughout the
years.  The classic sounds are part of the representation of Chicago Northern Soul.  Tuff hit
the charts with "Smoky Places" by the Corsairs,  "I Tried" by Jimmie Raye and "Sally Go
Round The Roses" by The Jaynetts.

Jamie Raye, V.P. of Tuff Records is adding new Artists to their roster with original
production projects to be released in the near future.  There will be compilations from the
archives which will be a rare treat for soul connoisseurs, as many are from previously
unreleased masters.  Abner Spector has opened the vaults to release some new
magic under the rainbow.
