DCC Compact Classics

DCC Compact Classics

Profile:
Formed - 1986 & closed 2001

Former ABC-Dunhill Records promotions executive Marshall Blonstein, who served in the same capacity with Epic Records-CBS as well as serving as president of Island Records and co-founding Ode Records, (re-)launched Dunhill Compact Classics (sans ABC) in 1986 - a week after hearing his first CD in a record shop.

With engineer Steve Hoffman in the mixing studio, Dunhill Compact Classics released 50 remastered vinyl reissues and over 240 CDs; many in Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab-style 24 karat gold plating.

After a costly legal struggle with the British Dunhill Tobacco Company, the name was changed to DCC Compact Classics.

A year after closing DCC, Blonstein picked up where he'd left off, and founded Audio Fidelity.
