Untitled[edit]

My revert of 64.222.226.14's edits is because through several articles, this user was changing and removing information. It is not necessarily vandalism, however I thought the prudent thing to do was revert until this user gave an explanation for such actions in the edit summary or talk page. siroχo 22:35, Jul 18, 2004 (UTC)

If the anon user wishes to contribute to record label articles, this is quite welcome. It would be a good idea to familiarize yourself with the links related to Wikipedia:Welcome newcomers, and perhaps become a logged in user. If material is removed from an article, give an explanation of exactly why such material should be removed in the article talk page. -- Infrogmation 18:24, 20 Jul 2004 (UTC)

moving to talk page[edit]

This was on the article, but it needs to go on the talk page instead


Coral Records, like UNI and Decca, were distributed by MCA for years.

In 1973, Coral, Uni, Decca, Vocalion (the budget subsidiary of Decca) all got swallowed up by MCA.

From this point on, all records that were still selling, like albums by Elton John (Uni) and the WHO (Decca) were reissued on the new MCA label.

On the record jackets, the new MCA catalog number was listed with the catalog number of the pervious label in fine print).

I do not recall ever seeing stickers with the new label & catalog number afixed to the jackets, of old stock, like I did when US record labels dumped their mono albums in favor of "stereo only" in early 1968. But then again, that is another story altogether.
