Cadet

Cadet

Profile:
Record label associated with records issued by the Chess Recording Corp. subsidiary of Chess.
Originally named Argo (6), the label's name was changed to Cadet in 1965 to avoid confusion with the British label Argo (2).

In 1968 the Chess label and the subsidiaries were bought by GRT. In the 1970s the label declined and was acquired in 1976 by the All Platinum Record Group, which became Sugar Hill Records Ltd. in 1979. In 1985 the Chess name and catalog was sold to MCA Records, Inc.

The use of original Argo cover art on reissues can be found through the late 1970s and should be documented properly.
The initial label was blue fading to white. In 1971 the design changed to yellow with a red or pink perimeter and bar.
Appears on most releases as simply Cadet accompanied by the Chess logo.

For counterfeit editions and other unofficial versions of its releases, please see Cadet (4).
