In NY, Korvette's had MONSTER record departments that were bigger than many entire stores are today. Sam Goody was their only serious competition until King Karol's came along. Goody's was top dog, but Korvettes was not to be ignored, especially in Huntington, L.I. where Goody and Korvettes were separated by a mere parking lot.

In LA, I worked for an all black (except me)record chain, VIP Records, run by the legendary Cletus Anderson. We moved a lot of CTI product which, IIRC, we got from Record Merch.

They sounded superb as well as they looked cool,though I was not a big fan of them.My first purchase on CTI was Deodato's Prelude and I still like a several albums by Stanley Turrentine.

In your research have you come across much info on King Karol Records or photo's? I worked for Ben Karol in the 70's and early 80's.
