On sale now Forever Changes Remaster Love. In late , James Petrillo , head of the American Federation of Musicians , announced an indefinite ban on all recording activities by union musicians, and this came into effect on January 1, The union action forced Atlantic to use almost all its capital to cut and stockpile enough recordings to last through the ban, which was expected to continue for at least a year.
Ertegun and Abramson spent much of the late s and early s scouring nightclubs in search of talent. Ertegun composed songs under the alias "A. Nugetre", including Big Joe Turner's hit "Chains of Love", recording them in booths in Times Square, then giving them to an arranger or session musician. Ertegun knew Stick's younger brother Brownie McGhee , with whom Stick happened to be staying, so he contacted the McGhee brothers and re-recorded the song.
When released in February ,  it became Atlantic's first hit, selling , copies, and reached No. Ertegun asked about artists' royalties, which he paid, and this surprised Columbia executives, who did not, and the deal was scuttled.
She was injured in a car accident en route to New York City, but Atlantic supported her for nine months and then signed her. Brown recorded more than eighty songs for Atlantic, becoming its bestselling, most prolific musician of the period. Joe Morris , one of the label's earliest signings, scored a hit with his October song "Anytime, Anyplace, Anywhere", the first Atlantic record issued in 45rpm format, which the company began pressing in January A few weeks later Brown's "Teardrops from My Eyes" became its first million-selling record.
In the s she sued Atlantic for unpaid royalties; although Atlantic, which prided itself on treating artists fairly, had stopped paying royalties to some musicians. Ertegun denied this was intentional. Recording engineer and producer Tom Dowd played a crucial role in Atlantic's success.
He initially worked for Atlantic on a freelance basis, but within a few years he had been hired as the label's full-time staff engineer.
His recordings for Atlantic and Stax influenced pop music. He had more hits than George Martin and Phil Spector combined. Atlantic was one of the first independent labels to make recordings in stereo: Dowd used a portable stereo recorder which ran simultaneously with the studio's existing mono recorder.
In according to Billboard Atlantic was the first label to issue commercial LPs recorded in the experimental stereo system called binaural recording. Playing them back required a turntable with a special tone-arm fitted with dual needles; it was not until around that the single stylus microgroove system in which the two stereo channels were cut into either side of a single groove became the industry standard.
Although these were primarily 45rpm mono singles for much of the s Dowd stockpiled his "parallel" stereo takes for future release. In the label issued History of Rhythm and Blues, Volume 4 in stereo. Atlantic's New York studio was the first in America to install multitrack recording machines, developed by the Ampex company.
Bobby Darin's "Splish, Splash" was the first song to be recorded on 8-track recorder. It was not until the mids that multitrack recorders became the norm in English studios and EMI's Abbey Road Studios did not install 8-track facilities until By the 45 had surpassed the 78 in sales for singles.
During the previous year, 78s had outsold 45s by a ratio of two to one. In February , Herb Abramson was drafted into the U. Wexler's success for Atlantic was the result of going outside jazz to sign acts who combined jazz, blues, and rhythm and blues, such as Ray Charles, Joe Turner, and Aretha Franklin. In July , Wexler and Ertegun wrote a prescient article for Cash Box devoted to what they called "cat music"; the same month, Atlantic had its first major "crossover" hit on the Billboard pop chart when the " Sh-Boom " by The Chords reached No.
Atlantic missed an important signing in when Sun owner Sam Phillips sold Elvis Presley 's recording contract in a bidding war between labels. Ahmet's older brother Nesuhi was hired in January But when Ahmet learned that Nesuhi had been offered a partnership in Atlantic's rival Imperial Records , he and Wexler convinced Nesuhi to join Atlantic instead. Nesuhi was also in charge of LP production. He was credited with improving the production, packaging, and originality of Atlantic's LPs.
When Abramson returned from military service in , he realized that he had been replaced by Wexler as Ahmet's partner. Abramson did not get along with either Wexler or Nesuhi Ertegun, and he had returned from military service with a German girlfriend, which precipitated his divorce from Miriam, a minor stockholder and Atlantic's business and publishing manager.
Abramson's departure opened the way for Ahmet Ertegun to take over as president of the label. In its tenth anniversary feature on Atlantic, Billboard noted, " For five years Atlantic "dominated the rhythm and blues chart with its roster of powerhouse artists". Beginning in , Atlantic created or acquired several subsidiary labels, the first being Cat Records.
By the mids Atlantic had an informal agreement with the French label Barclay , and the two companies regularly exchanged titles, usually jazz recordings. Atlantic also began to get recordings distributed in the United Kingdom, first through EMI on a 'one-off' basis. A subsidiary label, Atco , was established in to keep Abramson involved. His early releases were unsuccessful, and Abramson planned to drop him. But when Ertegun offered him another chance, the result was " Splish Splash ", which Darin had written in 12 minutes.
The song sold , copies in the first month and became a million-seller. He signed with Capitol and moved for Hollywood to attempt a movie career, but hits such as " You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby " and " Things " continued to benefit Atco through Darin returned to Atlantic in Their label Spark was bought by Atlantic, and they were hired as America's first independent record producers, free to produce for other labels.
Both became hits, and Atlantic hired him as a staff producer. Ahmet Ertegun liked him, but Leiber said, "He wasn't likable. He was funny, he was amusing—but he wasn't nice.
Miriam Bienstock called him "a pain in the neck". Atlantic tolerated Spector but with diminishing returns. Songwriter Bert Berns hated Spector's arrangement and thought it ruined the song, so Berns re-recorded it with The Isley Brothers and it became a hit. Spector became one of the most successful record producers of the s. Although Leiber and Stoller wrote many popular songs for Atlantic, their relationship with the label was deteriorating in The breaking point came when they asked for a producer's royalty.
It was granted informally, but their accountant insisted on a written contract and an audit of Atlantic's accounts. Although Leiber considered dropping the matter, Stoller pressed Atlantic for payment. Wexler exploded and replied the payment would mean the end of their relationship with the label. Leiber and Stoller backed down, but the relationship ended anyway. Their assignment to work on The Drifter's next recording was given to Phil Spector.
In they approached Jerry Wexler and proposed a merger with Atlantic. When interviewed in for Ertegun's biography, Wexler declined to discuss the matter, but Ertegun claimed these negotiations were a plan to buy him out. In September , the Ertegun brothers and Wexler were in the process of buying out the company's other two shareholders, Sabit and Bienstock,  and it was proposed that Leiber and Stoller buy Sabit's shares.
Leiber and Stoller told Ertegun they had no intention of buying him out, but Ertegun was aggravated by Goldner's attitude and was convinced Wexler was conspiring with them.
Wexler told Ertegun if he refused, the deal would be done without him. But the Ertegun brothers held the majority of stock while Wexler controlled about 20 percent. Acetone Remaster. See More.
