Crudely manufactured postwar discs with black print on yellow labels or orange print on olive labels. All known issues are anonymous dubs, probably the output of Paris, Texas’ own Swing Records Manufacturing Co. 513 13th St. N.E., which also produced Acorn and some early Town Lounge Club. Labels are oversized, often appearing to be hand cut. The owner Jimmy Mercer was one of the very few to face serious difficulties over party records. Mercer disappeared from the record scene abruptly in 1950. Between 1947 and 1950 Zest released a variety of material ranging from Hollywood Hot Shots 1937 Pure and Simple routines and 1936 Lil Johnson sides to post war Johnnie Cook material. It would appear that original material was reserved for other labels associated with Swing, particularly All-Spice.
