ATCO Records

Profile:
Also appears as "ATCO" only.
ATCO Records started life as a sub-label of Atlantic Records. In the early 1990s, the label was folded into the start-up East West Records America under the aegis of label president Sylvia Rhone. However, when Rhone was named the head of Elektra Records in 1995, she took East West America with her to the new label and ATCO was a temporary subsidiary of that label, although it released no new titles.
Fo all unofficial / bootleg / pirate copies of this label please use Atco Records (2)
In 2004, Elektra Records was shut down shortly after Warner Music was sold to a consortium of private investors led by billionaire Edgar Bronfman Jr. In 2008, however, a new ATCO Records emerged, this time a subsidiary of Rhino Records, Warner Music’s reissue label, and new titles were released. These titles are often 'reproductions' using the original label as a 'touch of authenticity' - a Scorpio Music, Inc. sticker often present.

From January 1967, Atlantic Labels - inc ATCO - had their pressing plant codes added to the Master numbers on Labels. The various pressing plants also had their labels printed up at different sources. So, invariably, the Label radius print (or press ref) can vary from one to another issue. This scenario lasted until the end of 1968, at which point the Company established a set 'radius print standard' and all plants complied (with the exception of Shelly Products).
Early labels had the mastering date prefixing the mastering code on Labels (e.g. 67C-11683-BW which is 1967. The suffix is 'Bestway'. See Example)

Ehh... This is the worst-sounding label i know. Cream Lp's soud as if they were recorded using comupter microphone. No bass, no dynamics... Really hard to go through those records. And so with Iron Butterfly (bit better) and Vanilla Fudge, Otis Redding CD... So much grat music wasted by poor mixing and pressing.
