Parachute Records

Parachute Records

Profile:
Parachute Records was launched in 1977 by former 20th Century Fox Records executive and music industry veteran Russ Regan only five buildings down the street from the main offices of Casablanca Record & FilmWorks, of which it became a subsidiary. The original label was active from 1977 to 1979.

PolyGram, who owned and operated Casablanca and all its subsidiaries since its acquisition in 1980, reactivated Parachute in 1983 as a children's label - the first of its kind for PolyGram (where Russ Regan moved on to work with in lieu of his Casablanca association).

The children's era of Parachute was even more short-lived than the previous era and the label was retired and reactivated one more time in 1995 (with a new logo) as a contemporary sub-label of Mercury Records. Its only known act from that era was Jane Kelly Williams, who scored a minor underground hit with "Show Me How To Catch A Fish".
