Anchor Records

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Anchor Records was a UK based record label, co-founded by Ian Ralfini and the American Broadcasting Company, which owned ABC Records in the United States, in 1974.[1] ABC Records marketed (distributed) Anchor albums in the US, and Anchor Records issued many ABC albums in the United Kingdom as "ABC Records Marketed by Anchor Records."

The Anchor Records label was black with silver print. The logo, at the top of the label, was a British sailor with an anchor behind him and the words "ANCHOR RECORDS LIMITED" above the sailor's hat and the word ANCHOR below. Anchor ceased operations in 1978, when ABC Records was sold & absorbed to MCA Records.
