The Constellation Record label was formed in August 1963 in Chicago, Illinois by Ewart G. Abner Jr., after he was fired from the Presidency of the Vee Jay Records label. Constellation was located at 1421 South Michigan Avenue and issued rhythm and blues and gospel music. The label was a subsidiary of the Dart Record Sales Corporation that Abner had started in 1962. There were three owners of the company. Besides Abner, who was President, William E. Bunky Sheppard was Vice President and Art Sheridan was Secretary. Art Sheridan was owner of the legendary Chance label in the early 1950's, and the recordings made by the The Flamingos, The Moonglows and others on the Chance label were reissued on albums on the Constellation Label. Gene Chandler was the most important artist on the Constellation Label.
