Gold Castle Records was a record label. It was co-owned by music industry veteran Danny Goldberg and Julian Schlossberg (co-producer / co-director of the live music film No Nukes). The label name is formed from the first halves of each of the co-founders' surnames - "Gold" from Goldberg and "Castle" from Schlossberg, Schloss being the German word for castle. The General Manager of Gold Castle was Paula Jeffries, a former executive at Windham Hill.
During the mid- to late-1980s, the label became home to such Baby Boomer icons as Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Peter, Paul and Mary and Eric Andersen, most of whom had previously been without record deals during the years prior. Don McLean also had at least two albums on the label in 1989 and 1990.
Although most of the artists who recorded for this company were already established artists, one well known new Greenwich Village 80s folk act released two records - the folk group The Washington Squares.
