Re: [ARSCLIST] FW: [ARSCLIST] w(h)ither Decca?

----- Original Message ----- From: "Tom Fine" <tflists@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
Hi Guys:
Here's how the ownership works nowadays. Way back in the days USA Decca was different from UK Decca,
but perhaps someone else can clarify if they were ever connected in one corporate entity.
No...they never were! US Decca was simply named after the UK label...which MAY
have provided some financial assistance...?!

US Decca was mainly created with the help of Jack Kapp, who had been the main
"A&R man" for Brunswick...and who brought quite a number of Brunswick artists
with him into the new operation! UK Decca did issue a number of US Brunswick
