Cupol (Sweden) / 1947

back next

Design: The label name logo, with its swooping cap 'C,' is angled upward at such a slight degree that it looks almost like a bad printing job.

History: Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K., who notes that this item was recorded in Stockholm 12 June, 1947. Thanks for updated info to Linda Jeanette Nygård of Norway, who writes: "I use an excellent Swedish web site pretty frequently, which relates that the label was founded in 1947, when Sonora label's recording executive left together with some of their artists to form Cupol. Label merged with the American CBS in 1970 and by 1973 CBS was in total control of the label. The last Cupol record was waxed in 1975."
