Paramount Pictures purchased Dot Records around 1958. In 1969-1970, Dot deleted their entire catalog (shortly afterwards, some of their best sellers were reissued) and Lawrence Welk and his troupe's masters and Randy Wood formed Ranwood Records (the original Dot Records MOR successor) and life went on. When Dot Records was reorganized, their focus was on Country Music which turned out to be their revival as a hit making label until ABC Records purchased them in 1975.

Actually, it was in August 1974 ... see: Billboard: Famous Labels Bought By ABC. At the time the Paramount and Dot labels were subsidiaries of the Famous Music Group, which was itself a subsidiary of Gulf+Western.

Of which I am fortunate enough to own a copy of in mono. Valuable too because quite a number of tracks on the Stereo LP are rechanneled. Real mono mixes on this promo, no fold downs.

I was at a garage sale where I found several of the easy listening titles from the late 1960's on Dot Japan issue. For whatever reason, or for the reason that I'd just never run across these until earlier this past spring at that garage sale, I never new Dot had Japan releases. They were thick and heavy. But unfortunately they had not been taken care of very well, so I didn't purchase them. I don't usually purchase that genre, but I would have if they'd been clean. If I had seen country music on Dot Japan, I think I would have bought at least one.
