Design: This Canadian-made label differs slightly from its U.S. counterpart (see previous page), having more of a horizontal emphasis.

History: Turkish-born Ahmet Ertegun, co-founder of Atlantic Records in 1947, came to the U.S. at an early age. He and business partner Herb Abramson gained the reputation of being fair and honest with the recording artists they signed (unlike many other record labels), and based on that, their record company went from strength to strength.
