Cotillion was a subsidiary label of Atlantic operating from 1968 to 1986. Its first significant artist was Brook Benton, who had his biggest hit in 1970 with Rainy Night In Georgia. It released the triple-LP Woodstock soundtrack album that summer. The label soon after signed progressive rock legends Emerson Lake & Palmer.
By the mid-Seventies, the label began signing the likes of funk bands Mass Production and Slave, P-Funk splinter groups the Brides Of Funkenstein and the Horny Horns, The Temptations (briefly) and became the home of Sister Sledge, who had been moved from sister label Atco in 1978.

The last active artists were Johnny Gill, Stacy Lattisaw, Slave and Sister Sledge, who were moved to the parent Atlantic label after it was deactivated. Lattisaw moved to Motown and Gill ultimately joined New Edition.
Still used on certain reissues (i.e. the Woodstock soundtrack album and the The Velvet Underground's Loaded album).

    The Brides of Funkenstein and Fred Wesley & the Horny Horns were both signed directly to Atlantic. Never released anything on Cotillion. Also The Temptations left Motown for two albums on Atlantic in the 1970s, but never released anything on Cotillion. Also probably worth mentioning that Cotillion's revival in the mid 1970s was done under the leadership of then president Henry Allen.
