ABC/Dunhill Records

ABC/Dunhill Records

Profile:
The ABC/Dunhill Records name was employed in two ways:
1) As a holding company owned by ABC Records, Inc.. When it appears this way on sleeves or label rimtext, it should be used in the Record Company, Licensed By / To, or Distrbuted By LCCN roles, as indicated.
2) As a Record Label in Canada and some European countries, usually presented as a rectangular logo on a tan background (see profile photos). RCA Limited handled the label in Canada from early 1971 to January 1, 1976. GRT Of Canada Ltd. took over ABC and its sub-labels in March 1976.

For US Dunhill recordings through 1974 with label art which presents the Dunhill and ABC Records adjacent, please use Dunhill + ABC Records as dual main Labels.
For releases from 1974 to 1980 with the "ABC Dunhill" logo on a multicolored "target" label, please use ABC Dunhill as the main Label.

Dunhill Records was founded in 1964 by Lou Adler, & began as a record label the following year. One of Dunhill's first singles was "Eve of Destruction" by Barry McGuire. Some of Dunhill's most noteworthy acts include The Mamas and the Papas, The Grass Roots, Steppenwolf & Three Dog Night. Other acts who've recorded for Dunhill include Cass Elliot, Thelma Houston, Jimmy Buffett & Joe Walsh. In 1966, Dunhill Records was sold to ABC Records, where the two labels would enjoy a successful merger. ABC Records would also continue on its own as well. The ABC/Dunhill staple of artists was quite unique & talented, & obtained massive success throughout their careers. In 1975, the Dunhill label was absorbed by its parent company ABC, & has not seen a revival since then. In 1990 the label had a brief revival under the name DCC Compact Classics, until a company who owned the Dunhill name threatened legal proceedings, & the DCC Compact Classics name was discontinued. Dunhill Records will always have a unique place in my heart for their distinctive roster of musical talent & that classic black label with that rainbow outlined box logo containing the words "DUNHILL" & "abc" in their respective box icons. Bravo, ABC/Dunhill Records!
