Independent record label started in mid-1945 by Irvin Feld and Viola Marsham in New York, before soon moving to Washington D.C. where Feld was situated.

The label was decidedly small-time but recorded in a variety of fields, their most successful act being country artist Arthur Smith who later would be cited as an influence on rockabilly guitar. Their rock output was almost non-existent as the label was sold off to MGM in July 1948, less than a year after rock’s arrival and in the midst of a recording ban that began the first of that year which prevented them from seizing upon the style as it made a name for itself.

Feld however would remain associated with music for quite some time by using his connections with large venues to put on rock concerts. However that soon took a back seat to his first love, the circus, which eventually led to him buying the famed Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus with Judge Roy Hofheinz, the owner of the Houston Astros baseball team and the first indoor stadium the Houston Astrodome, where the circus was among its most popular draws. Feld sold the circus in 1971 but his heart never left the big top and he repurchased it in 1982, two years before his death at 66 years of age.
