Dunhill

Dunhill

Profile:
Active 1964 to 1974. U.S.A. releases had three label styles:
1964 to 1968 Dunhill logo with single line border (Image).
1970 to 1974 Dunhill logo presented adjacent to ABC Records logo (Image); enter both as labels.
1973-only Dunhill "Blocks" logo presented adjacent to ABC Records logo (Image); enter both as labels.

Initially Dunhill Productions, established in 1964 by partners Lou Adler, Al Bennett, Pierre Cossette and Bobby Roberts. After producing several successful releases for Johnny Rivers, Dunhill Records launched in 1965, distributed by ABC-Paramount Records, Inc.. Black label art with a distinctive logo containing the word “Dunhill” inside a hillock-shaped frame was used. The label's hits by The Mamas & The Papas and Barry McGuire made it a success; Adler sold his portion of the company to ABC in late 1966.

The ABC Records logo was added to Dunhill label art in 1968, but the company remained a separate subsidiary. In 1974, another corporate re-imaging gave all ABC subsidiaries new label artwork with concentric colored rings and the round ABC logo at top adjacent to the subsidiary label name. At this point, the label name officially changed to ABC Dunhill. The label ceased to exist with the acquisition of ABC Records by MCA in 1979.

All black-label Dunhill releases from 1968 through 1974 (with ABC logo on labels) should use Dunhill as the main label, with either ABC-Paramount Records, Inc. or ABC Records, Inc. (as appropriate) credited in the Record Company role. Colored-label releases from 1974 and later should use ABC Dunhill as the main label.
