Avco Records

Avco Records

Profile:
USA record label of what was the Avco Records Corp.
Artists, producers, songwriters and A&R men Hugo Peretti and Luigi Creatore, better known as Hugo & Luigi, enjoyed huge success before starting up the Avco label in the late 1960s. The two American-born enterpreneurs worked at Mercury Records before being hired by George Goldner and his partners at Roulette Records in 1956 (which Goldner and his other partners, including Peretti and Creatore, sold their interests eighteen months later to Morris Levy) and going on to work at RCA Victor with Perry Como, Sam Cooke, Tokens, The and Elvis Presley.

Peretti and Creatore set up the label together with legendary film producer and head of Avco-Embassy Pictures Joseph E. Levine in 1968, and it went on to become a success, mainly thanks to soul group The Stylistics. The six-man group charted over a dozen hits before moving on to Hugo and Luigi's own H & L Records in 1976, together with Van McCoy, whose "The Hustle" was Avco's last major chart hit. Creatore later retired to Florida. Peretti died in 1986.

The Avco Records catalog is today owned by Amherst Records.
