Continental Records was the name of two different record labels of the mid 20th century, one based in New York City, the United States of America, and the second based in São Paulo, Brazil.
However, there was at least one additional Continental label, based in Milwaukee, WI (519 Brumder Bldg.) from approximately 1956-59.
Famous quotes containing the word records:
“The camera relieves us of the burden of memory. It surveys us like God, and it surveys for us. Yet no other god has been so cynical, for the camera records in order to forget.”
—John Berger (b. 1926)
