An independent company, Atlantic gained a reputation for being honest, and their business practices allowed them to hire the best musicians in the business. When it was industry practice to pay royalties below 2 percent, or in the case of minority performers, no royalties at all, Atlantic was paying 3 to 5 percent. Specializing in rhythm & blues, jazz and soul, Atlantic also recorded rock & roll, blues, country and western, gospel and comedy. From early on in their history, Atlantic was a major player among American record companies.
In 1967 they were purchased by Warner Bros. - Seven Arts Records, and today is part of the Warner Music Group.

The letters 'W', 'X' or 'Z' etched in many runouts were quality control codes used by Atlantic to tell engineers what brand of lacquer blank had been used to master / cut the record.
- W: Audiodisc
- X: Transco
- Z: Soundcraft.
