BIOGRAPHICAL PROFILE

Coral Records

Coral Records was a Decca Records subsidiary formed in 1949. It recorded pop artists McGuire Sisters and Teresa Brewer, as well as rock and roller Buddy Holly.

It was based in the United States. Various jazz and swing band recordings were issued on Coral in the 1940s. Coral’s Artists & Repertoire manager Bob Thiele married Coral artist Teresa Brewer.

In the late 1950s, Debbie Reynolds briefly recorded for Coral, with such songs as “Tammy”. Coral Records was also the home of Buddy Holly and the Crickets.

Coral was absorbed by MCA Records in the late 1960s. In 1973, MCA amalgamated Decca, Kapp Records, Uni Records, and Vocalion Records under the single MCA Records banner, and the MCA Coral label became the company’s mid-line and budget album reissue label in the U.S. and internationally throughout the 1970s.

The catalogue, except for recordings by Lawrence Welk, is today owned by Universal Music Group.
