Quickly following the release of volume one and volume two of "The Ru-Jac Records Story," comes volume three and four through Omnivore Recordings. The Ru-Jac label felt a surge in popularity during the mid-sixties as displayed in "The Ru-Jac Records Story, Volume Three: 1966-1967." The first half of this new 25-song compilation highlights the talents of the female R&B singers Rita Doryse and Kitty Lane. Songs like "Goodie Goodie" and "Sweatheart" just simply burn with the passion that these ladies poured into their music. This volume also highlights the work of Gene & Eddie, along with previously unissued music from Winfield Parker and The Shyndells. This volume closes with songs featuring the soulful boogie of Leon Gibson and the doo-wop feel of The Caressors.
The fourth volume covers the largest time period, between 1967-1980, as the Ru-Jac Records label was sensing the change in the music landscape. Their story continues with their two biggest artists, Winfield Parker and Gene & Eddie as their music kept the Ru-Jac label on the map, entering the decade of the seventies. The sweetness of the Fred Martin Revue was keeping the magic of the sixties R&B alive with songs like "Take Me Back Again" and "When I'm Alone," as Martin was able to change with times. He relished the funk of the seventies sound with "Sugar" and "I Loved You Once" with the help of Willie Mason. The Ru-Jac Records label went 8 years before issuing their next single by Jimmy Dotson & Rhythm By Inner Light Band in 1980.
