Grand Award began life as Waldorf Music Hall records in the early 1950s. The label was devoted to the pop music of the day - largely anonymous musicians recording imitations of the popular styles of the time. A small number are jazz, mainly small group swing.

Around 1955 the company began to transform into Grand Award Records. By this point Enoch Light was a major player in the company, both as a recording artist and as a company officer. For the next five years Grand Award records had a distinctive cover design consisting of a fake frame of black and white around a well-drawn illustration in the middle. Early ones carried the slogan "Great Music - Great Art", to emphasize the importance of the cover. Classical music was added to the roster. Most of the classical records had reproductions of European masters for the illustrations. The pop records had illustrations by American illustrators of the day.

The company was sold to ABC ca. 1966. By 1970, the history of Waldorf Music Hall/Grand Award/Command came to an end. A few LP reissues (with the label now ABC/Grand Award) kept the music alive until about 1977.
