The Atlantic Records Story

Atlantic Records was the most important R&B; record label of all time. Next week on Harlem, you’ll get the back story on how Atlantic signed Ruth Brown, The Clovers & Professor Longhair from the man who signed then, Atlantic co-founder Ahmet Ertegun. Atlantic began in late 1947 with a number of killer jazz releases before they scouted out and signed their R&B; talent; Ray Charles, Chuck Willis & Ivory Joe Hunter. This is PART ONE of a two part series on Atlantic Records, only on HARLEM.
