Record labels are a crucial part of the commercial music industry today and always have been since music started being recorded. Record labels allow an artist to have his or her music recorded onto a tape, compact disc (CD), or any other form of recording, which they may choose. This includes many digital recordings, which have become popular in today?s musical society. There have been many different record labels over the years, including BMG Records, Atlantic Records, Pearl Records, Warner Bros. Records and Capitol Records, just to name a few. In the following paragraphs I am going to describe how Capitol Records came about, and what kind of impact it has had on the commercial music industry. In addition, I will also give information on Capitol Records today.
Capitol Records is one of the major and most profitable music labels in the music industry today, and has been a leading records label since its creation in 1942. A songwriter named Johnny Mercer, along with a Hollywood music storeowner named Glenn Wallichs, and a movie producer by the name of Buddy DeSylva founded Capitol Records together in 1942.
