The Dot Records Customer Service Plan

dotplanPresented below, in its entirety, is the Dot Records Customer Service Plan, as found on one of their (early 1960s?) inserts. Enjoy.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO OUR CUSTOMERS

Dear Customer:

Have you ever asked your record dealer for a Dot album and found that it is not in stock? If so, we’d like to tell you about the Dot Customer Service Plan and how it works.

If your dealer does not have the Dot album of your choice, ask him to use the Dot Customer Service Plan postage-paid post cards to order that album directly from Dot Records in Hollywood. Your order will be sent to him by return mail, and you will be notified of its arrival at your dealer’s by post card. Thus, your dealer gets credit for the sale even though he did not have the album in stock. Support your local dealer by availing yourself of this plan.

The Ballads and the Beat!

BalladsHarry James was a music making machine throughout his illustrious career. Having put out five studio albums between 1965 and 1966 alone, this trumpet-pumping, band-leading barbarian gathered a ton of much deserved respect throughout the swing scene, and his timeless music has pushed him to the front of this historical genre. Dot Records was Mr. James’ fourth label, having released several other noteworthy albums for Columbia, Capitol, and MGM, and as you can clearly see, knew how to design an album cover circa: 1966. Enjoy a bit o’ the swing, now n’ again.

The Greatest Sound on Record

Connect the Records

Dot Records_smallerPrimarily active from ’50 to ’77, Tennessee-based Dot Records showcased, alongside its colorful logo, the following spectrum of artists: Billy Vaughn, Mitch Ryder, Jimmy Dorsey, Jack Kerouac, Luis Armstrong, Lawrence Welk, Pat Boone, The Four Lads, Leonard Nimoy, Roy Clark, and Louis Prima… to name a short few.

Owned and operated by (not Sony, surprise-surprise) the monopolizing Universal Music Group, the light from this once beaming label is, and will forever be, eclipsed by the heavy-pocketed, greed-tailored conglomerates.

When connecting the dots always spells out Universal, you know it’s time to continue on down the line.
