For the label founded by Andreas Katsambas in 1998, see The End Records.

End Records was a record label founded in 1957 by George Goldner.[1] In 1962 the label was acquired by Morris Levy and incorporated into Roulette Records.[2] Among its more successful recording acts were The Flamingos, The Chantels, and Little Anthony and the Imperials; it also recorded singles by Marilyn Monroe and Wilt Chamberlain. In 1988 Roulette was purchased by Rhino Records,[3] and Rhino in turn was sold in the '90s to what is now the Warner Music Group, which currently owns the End Records archives.
