Crown Records

Crown Records was a short-lived label (1953 – 1969), with embarrassingly cheap production. From sleeves that fell apart, to poor pressings, Crown appeared to be a smash-and-grab label, doing whatever it could to turn a buck, even if it meant tarnishing itself, and the knock-off artists it employed. For a rather hilarious background on Crown, head on over to Discogs. It’s a quick read, and you may surprise yourself with a chuckle or two.
