Crown Records


Crown Records was a budget label of Saul and Jules Bahari, who owned the Modern, RPM and Kent labels. It started in December, 1953 and continued until 1969, earning itself the reputation of the king of the junk record labels. Aside from endlessly reissuing and repackaging the legitimate Modern and RPM hits including the B.B. King material, what Crown had to offer was musical junk food on plastic plates (i.e. cut-rate children's, classical, Broadway and big band cover version, generic and sound-alike pop and R&B albums). 

The covers usually fell apart almost instantly. LP's were shipped out with NO inner paper liners thus splitting covers. The cheaply-made records sounded worn right out of the package. Plagued with more than the typical pressing flaws, noise can be heard and bumps seen on most LP's. Crown was far too cheap to issue promotional copies (special labels or not)...if they ever gave any away.
