Maryann Farra – Never Gonna Leave You – Brunswick


Out of stock

“Brunswick” records first began producing phonographs in 1916, then began marketing their own line of records. In April 1930, Brunswick-Balke-Collender sold “Brunswick” records to Warner Bros., who then leased the entire operation to the American Record Corporation (ARC) in December 1931. In 1932, the UK branch was acquired by British Decca. In 1939, the American Record Corp. was bought by the Columbia Broadcasting System. Columbia discontinued the Brunswick label in 1940, which violated the lease agreement, with the Brunswick trademark reverting back to Warners. In 1941, Warners sold the Brunswick and Vocalion to American Decca. In 1943, Decca revived the Brunswick label, mostly for reissues of recordings from earlier decades. After World War II, American Decca releases were issued in the United Kingdom on the Brunswick label until 1968 when the MCA Records label was introduced in the UK. By 1952, Brunswick was put under the management of Decca’s Coral Records subsidiary. That same year, Brunswick resumed releasing new material. Starting in the latter part of the 1950’s and well into the 1970’s, the label was recording more R&B/Soul acts.  Little is known about Maryann Farra, apart from a few disc she put out on “Brunswick” records and a couple of other labels during the 1970’s. This disc is in EXCELLENT condition, The other side being a “Disco” version. Tis disc has light wear, conservatively graded in VG++ condition, worth checking the flip
