CBS Records Canada Ltd.

CBS Records Canada Ltd.

Profile:
The Canadian branch of Columbia Records/CBS Records, operating under this name from 08 June 1976 until 14 December 1990 (previous name Columbia Records of Canada, Ltd., between 1954-1976, later name Sony Music Entertainment (Canada) Inc., since 1990). Headquartered in Don Mills, Toronto since 1960 where also a vinyl pressing plant was in operation from 1971 until 1988. These pressings can be identified by the "DM" (Don Mills) faintly etched in the runout. An etched 2HZ: or 5HZ: in the runout also indicates the lacquer was cut here. After 1988 all CBS vinyl was pressed by Cinram.

The plant also manufactured cassettes, mostly for their own releases, but occasionally other labels as well, such as WEA Music Of Canada, Ltd. releases with the "CB" duplicator code. In 1984, CBS switched to using exclusively CrO₂ tape for cassette duplication. Accordingly, cassettes with a red "Chromium Dioxide" banner at the bottom cannot be earlier than 1984.

NOTE: On most Canadian releases, the company name appears in both English and in French (CBS Disques Canada Ltée), In these cases, please credit both entities if they appear on the release like that, even if it is the same company.
Some Francophone releases will only have the French name of the label on them.

Trademark owner "Epic".
