Springboard

Profile:
Also known by its slogan, "America's Best Buy In Recorded Music", Springboard was founded in New Jersey during December of 1968 and was most active as a budget label during the 1970s.

It initially operated as a subsidiary of Springboard International Records, Inc. In 1974, it acquired parts of the Scepter Records catalog were aquired from its founder Florence Greenberg and in 1976, it acquired Musicor Records from its owner Art Talmadge. As a result, it routinely issued cut-rate compilations culled from the Scepter and Musicor catalogs as well as "Top of the Pops"-style Top 40 sound-a-like cover-version records, both of which were sold in K-Mart and other popular department stores.

In 1980, its parent company filed for bankruptcy. Thereafter, it was acquired by Capitol Records until 1984 when Gusto Records, Inc. acquired the Springboard brand.

Attention: There use to be several label versions - for example boxed logo and unboxed logo - white or black rim- or other parts text - and so on. Sometimes the Incorporated company name is mentioned, sometimes without the suffix. For this reason, please always provide label images for your submission. Best here would be a full set to of images, to state ONE clear version, as the guides ask for. Please try to denote the runout information, too. It sometimes include a mastering date.

There are several addresses in New Jersey mentioned on the rear cover and the labels, that may be helpful when denoted at the release notes, to find an accurate release date for the version. Since Oct. 1976, the company also used it's new acquired building in Los Angeles.

Where Springboard is the parent label i.e. on some Trip / Musicor / Upfront / Lakeside [and others] releases "A Product Of" is printed on the perimeter or sleeve please use Springboard International Records, Inc. as Record Company.
