For the companies, see Dot Records, Inc., Famous Music Corporation/Paramount Pictures Corporation, MCA Records, Inc..
American label founded around 1950 by Randy Wood & Gene Nobles in Gallatin, Tennessee.
Dot Records was sold to Paramount Pictures in 1957 (and adopted a version of the Paramount logo which it used on 45 RPM single sleeves and album covers; the company had relocated to Hollywood by 1956). Gulf+Western Industries bought Paramount in 1968, placed its operation under its Famous Music publishing unit and changed the Dot label design. The G+W-era Paramount logo started appearing on Dot albums about at record number DLP-25852. The back catalog to date was deleted once the Famous Music administration began. Dot reissues subsequently appeared on the Paramount Records and Famous Records labels. Gulf+Western sold its record operation to ABC in late 1973 which absorbed the catalog and labels into ABC Dunhill Records.

Early in 1974, Dot Records was renamed ABC DOT and became the country music unit of ABC Records. The new DOSD-2001 series lasted until the end of 1977 when Dot was discontinued in favor of the parent ABC label. In 1979, ABC's catalog, including Dot, was sold to MCA which itself merged in 1998 with PolyGram and ultimately became Universal Music Group.

Billed itself in the 1950s and 1960s as having "The Nation's Best Selling Records". Though its biggest stars included Pat Boone and bandleaders Billy Vaughn and Lawrence Welk (who left the label with his back catalog after the 1968 sale of the company), a number of significant early rock and roll, surf (The Surfaris) and doo-wop singles were released on Dot, often under license from outside producers.

Distributed Bob Crewe's DynoVoice Records for a brief time in 1968-69. Also pressed and distributed Jeff Barry's Steed Records from 1968 to 1971.

Subsidiary labels include Crystalette (Dodie Stevens), Hamilton and Acta (The American Breed).

In 2014, Dot Records was revived in a joint venture between Big Machine Label Group and Republic Nashville, with Chris Stacey (2) appointed General Manager.
