This collection contains papers, publications, audio and video files, as well as scrapbooks that document the history of Rampart
Records and multicultural rock and roll bands in the Los Angeles area. As an ongoing collection owner, Hector Gonzalez continues
to operate the record companies that he inherited from Eddie Davis in 1994.
In 1994, Hector Gonzalez became the heir to the Eddie Davis Recording and Publishing Estate, The Rampart Record Group, and
The Faro Music Publishing Group (a division of Gordo Enterprises). He relinquished his position at CBS Television City to
administer these companies and license a vast music catalog dating back to 1958 for CD compilations, film and television.
Since 1960, Rampart Records has been devoted almost exclusively to the development of Mexican American talent known on the
West Coast as "The Eastside Sound."
