Profile:
A San Antonio, Texas barbershopper, Mike McCord decided that many of the good singing
quartets were not being “heard”. He took on this challenge and, on his own, started a
company and began producing LPs of top quartets.

Over a two-year period Mike and his team produced eighteen high-quality recordings
and sold these to barbershoppers. He picked quartets that he
thought were up and coming on the contest stage. Some were also considered the most
sought-after show quartets.

Many barbershoppers of this era grew up on these CHORD records. These groups and
their songs greatly influenced our tastes in this style and many give credit for the fact
that they are STILL singing today to the wonderful LPs Mike McCord produced.
