China Record Corporation (CRC; Chinese: 中国唱片总公司; pinyin: Zhōngguó Chàngpiàn Zǒngōnggsī) is the Chinese government's oldest and largest record company. CRC's catalog of traditional Chinese ethnic, classical and folk music features over 60,000 releases spanning some 5,000 years of Chinese musical history, and includes the Peking operas and a large collection of children's tunes and pop music. Many of the recordings, which date back to the 1920s and 1930s, are the oldest known recordings in China.[1]
