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.
