So far he hasn't published manifestos like Stratos or Bargeld, though he clearly shares their ideology. University of Liverpool University of Chester : and Camion Blanc. By the time he joined Columbia, he had mixed successful pop songs like " Greenback Dollar ," with hard rock songs for Steppenwolf , such as " The Pusher ", which was used in the film Easy Rider in the same year.
When he landed at Columbia, his album My Griffin Is Gone was described as "the poster child for 'overproduced,' full of all kinds of instruments and even strings".
Axton eventually became a country singer, and founded his own record label, Jeremiah. Tom Rush had always been the "storyteller" or "balladeer" type of folk artist, before and after his stint with Columbia, to which Rush was lured from Elektra. As with Axton, Rush was given "the treatment" on his self-titled Columbia debut.
The multitude of instruments added to his usual solo guitar were all done "tastefully", of course, but was not really on par with Rush's audience expectations. He commented to record label historian Mike Callahan:.
Well, when you're in the studio, they bring out all these "sweeteners" and things they have, and while you're there, you say, yeah, that sounds good. But then you get the album home and you almost can't hear yourself under all that. Eventually, Rush returned to his usual sound which he applied to his next three albums for Columbia and has been playing to appreciative audiences ever since.
This presented a catalog numbering system challenge as Columbia had used a four-digit catalog number for 13 years, and CS seemed cumbersome. Columbia decided to start issuing albums at CS instead, preserving the four-digit catalog number. However, this resulted in the reuse of numbers previously used in —58, although the prefix was now different. The prefix letter G was also used for two album sets—or the number of records in the set after the label letter, such as KC2.
Chronologically, Columbia issued at least one album in this series in August, but by that time, the CBS Consolidated series, which started issuing albums in July with the new label design, was well underway, having issued nearly albums. The system was later expanded with even more prefix letters, which continued until In September , under the guidance of Clive Davis , Columbia Records entered the West Coast rock market, opening a state-of-the art recording studio which was located at Folsom St.
The recording studio operated under CBS until During the early s, Columbia began recording in a four-channel process called quadraphonic , using the "SQ" Stereo Quadraphonic standard that used an electronic encoding process that could be decoded by special amplifiers and then played through four speakers, with each speaker placed in the corner of a room.
Remarkably, RCA countered with another quadraphonic process that required a special cartridge to play the "discrete" recordings for four-channel playback. Both Columbia and RCA's quadraphonic records could be played on conventional stereo equipment. Although the Columbia process required less equipment and was quite effective, many were confused by the competing systems and sales of both Columbia's matrix recordings and RCA's discrete recordings were disappointing.
A few other companies also issued some matrix recordings for a few years. Columbia even released a soundtrack album of the movie version of Funny Girl in quadraphonic. Many of these recordings were later remastered and released in Dolby surround sound on CD.
At this point, according to music historian Frederic Dannen, the shy and introverted Yetnikoff began to transform his personality, becoming in Asher's words "wild, menacing, crude, and above all, very loud". In Dannen's view, Yetnikoff was probably over-compensating for his naturally sensitive and generous personality, and that he had little hope of being recognised as a "record man" someone with a musical ear and an intuitive understanding of current trends and artists' intentions because he was tone-deaf, so he instead determined to become a "colourful character".
CBS Records had a popular roster of musicians. But the music industry was in financial decline. The label laid off hundreds of employees. Charged with cutting costs and restoring profits, Asher was reportedly reluctant to take on the role. He was worried that Yetnikoff would resent his promotion. But Backe had confidence in Asher's experience. Backe considered him to be honest and trustworthy, and he appealed to Asher's loyalty to the company.
Employees at CBS thought Asher was a bore and an interloper. He cut back on expenses and on perks like limousines and restaurants.
His relationship with Yetnikoff deteriorated. Asher became increasingly concerned about the huge and rapidly growing cost of hiring independent agents, who were paid to promote new singles to radio station program directors. The results were immediate and deeply troubling - not one of the major radio stations in Los Angeles would program the record, despite the fact that the group was in town, performing the first seven concerts on their elaborate The Wall Tour at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena to rave reviews and sold-out crowds.
Asher was already worried about the growing power of The Network, and the fact it operated entirely outside the control of the label, but he was profoundly dismayed to realize that "The Network" was in effect a huge extortion racket, and that the operation could well be linked to organized crime - a concern vehemently dismissed by Yetnikoff, who resolutely defended the "indies" and declared them to be "mensches".
But Dick Asher now knew that The Network's real power lay in their ability to prevent records from being picked up by radio, and as an experienced media lawyer and a loyal CBS employee, he was also acutely aware that this could become a new payola scandal which had the potential to engulf the entire CBS corporation, and that the Federal Communications Commission could even revoke CBS' all-important broadcast licenses if the corporation was found to be involved in any illegality.
Columbia Records remains a premier subsidiary label of Sony Music Entertainment. The label is headed by chairman Rob Stringer , along with executive vice president and general manager Joel Klaiman , who joined the label in December Sony and Columbia had cooperated earlier. The acquisition of rig including the "Magic Notes" logo presented the company with a dilemma of which logo to use.
That logo is currently used in the "Columbia Jazz" series of jazz releases and reissues. In mid to late , it was eventually decided that the "Walking Eye" previously the CBS Records logo outside North America would be Columbia's logo, with the retained Columbia word mark design, throughout the world except in Japan where Nippon Columbia has the rights to the Columbia trademark to this day and continues to use the "Magic Notes" logo. As of October , there were 85 recording artists signed to Columbia Records,  making it the largest of the three flagship labels owned by Sony Music followed by RCA Records with 78 artists and Epic Records with 43 artists.
In , Columbia made an affiliation with unsigned artist promotion label Aware Records to distribute Aware's artists' music. Through this venture, Columbia has found highly successful artists. In , Columbia and Aware accepted the option to continue this relationship. Columbia had given its country music department semi-autonomy for many years and through the s, had a 20, series catalog for country music singles while the rest of Columbia's output of singles had a 30,, then 40, series catalog number.
In , Columbia moved into the Woolworth Building in New York City  and housed its first recording studio there. In , Columbia used this studio to make one of the earliest jazz records, by the Original Dixieland Jass Band.
The Columbia 30th Street Studio at East 30th Streets nicknamed "The Church" was considered by some in the music industry to be the best-sounding room of its time, and many consider it to have been the greatest recording studio in history. It was used by several denominations over the next seventy years, then briefly became a radio studio in the late s before being leased by CBS in and converted into a state-of-the-art recording studio.
The 30th Street Studio had unique sonic characteristics, thanks to its soaring one-hundred-foot vaulted ceiling, exposed timber beams, plaster walls and unvarnished wooden floor. He posted detailed standing orders to all staff to control the maintenance and cleaning of the space, even down to the changing of light bulbs, ordering that the curtains and other fittings were never to be touched, that no painting was allowed, and especially that the wooden floor could only be swept or vacuumed, and was never under any circumstances to be mopped with water, for fear that this might alter the room's resonant and reflective properties.
In spite of the building's inherent heritage status and its cultural significance, it was sold to developers in , demolished, and replaced by a high-rise apartment complex. Columbia also recorded in the highly respected Liederkranz Hall, at East 58th Street between Park and Lexington Avenues, in New York City, it was built by and formerly belonged to a German cultural and musical society, The Liederkranz Society , and used as a recording studio Victor also recorded in Liederkranz Hall in the late s.

Good thing I didn't wander into any string factories before they cut this one. At the conclusion of the intensive week of teaching and playing in , an all-day recording session was arranged by Swing Cat.
Paul Anastasio on violin was joined by fellow instructors Steve Jones on piano and Roger Bellow on guitar, with the able assistance of Kathy Reitz on bass. This quartet swung hard on three original Count Basie-style blues numbers and a standard by longtime Basie trumpeter Harry "Sweets" Edison.
Joining this instrumental core of players were several vocal instructors as well, including Chicago songbird Susan Smentek, Liz Masterson and Sean Blackburn. Swingin' in Seattle Seattle bids farewell to what passes for summer with the aptly named Bumbershoot Arts Festival, featuring a mixture of national and local artists performing in a variety of styles. Paul Anastasio and his Swing Cats were selected to showcase at Bumbershoot in and again in The more recent set, with Paul on violin, Jack Hansen on guitar and Spencer Hoveskeland on bass, is presented here exactly as the audience heard it on that sunny Seattle summer day.
He hopes it shows. Jack Hansen - Arch-top Guitar Jack has been a presence on the Western Washington music scene for over 30 years, with his musical association with Paul going back nearly that far. A veteran of many Seattle bands, he's heard here playing rock-solid rhythm guitar in the tradition of Basie guitarist Freddie Green. A talented, creative player known for his arco bowed bass work, Spencer loves to laugh and is a tremendous addition to the Swing Cats.
Paul Anastasio was fortunate to have had the opportunity to perform, jam and study informally with some truly legendary western swing musicians. While attending the Sweet's Mill music camp outside of Fresno, California, he was introduced to the phenomenal guitarist Frank Hicks. Frank, who had played in Junior Bernard's western swing band after Junior left Bob Wills, was known up and down the west coast as a master of swing guitar.
