Fania Records

Profile:
First known as Fania Records later label changed to just Fania. Please use Fania Records for label.

Label created in late 1963 by Johnny Pacheco and Jerry Masucci that became known as the Motown of Latin music.

At one time (pre-2005) the nearly 3,000 title catalog was readily available on CD. Since then, only a few hundred titles have seen the light of day due to changing ownership of the rights to the catalog and other complications.

In 2005 Fania Records was acquired by Miami-based Emusica from the Masucci family. In 2009 Código Music purchased the label from eMusica. Both times a program was started to reissue the catalog on CD but the first attempt stalled when the ownership moved from Emusica to Código Music. Sometime in 2011/12 the reissue attempts of Código Music started to go out-of-print and became yet again unavailable as Código Music's distribution was changing hand to a company called Red.

On July 27, 2018, the label was sold to Concord Music.

OjO: There are many late 90's to early 2000's Fania Records Gold label Reissues of their original Gold label releases. And unless you know what to look for, you could be paying good money for a Gold Label Reissue that ALMOST looks identical to the Original. The difference is in the text layout of the center record labels on the Gold label Reissues: The release ID is on the left side of the spindle hole, and Stereo or Mono, Side A, or Side B on the right side of the spindle hole. On the Originals, the text layout on the labels WILL HAVE the Release ID, Side A, or Side B, and Stereo or Mono ALL on the left side of the spindle hole. And upon a closer inspection, you'l notice the differences in the matrices (runouts) within the dead wax. The jacket construction and layout on both the Original, and Reissue are identical. So if you're buying a release that is still sealed, and supposedly, an Original Gold Label, proceed with caution.
