Paragon, which was founded in Macon, Georgia by Alex Hodges in , now represents a variety of artists, ranging from southern bands such as the Allmans, Atlanta Rhythm Section and Charlie Daniels to the mainstream rock of Alice Cooper, plus several new wave bands in- cluding the Police, Blondie and Ultravox.
In addition. Paragon possesses a strong black music division, representing Brick, Bohannon, Bobby Womack and Muddy Waters, among others. When I was at Motown, Berry Gordy used to stress that record-making was the domain of producers and writers, and that artists were to follow directions. Despite the expansion of the agency and its hectic schedule ahead, Hodges asserts that Paragon will not become so large a company that it cannot maintain close per- sonal relations with each of its clients.
We have and always will have a tight-knit organization that will give close, personal attention to each of our clients, large or small. Bob Siner has had a tremendous impact on the industry in a short period of time. The fact that they are making such a dramatic move into disco is indicative of just how far they are prepared to go to make MCA a monster. Pictured in foreground are: Chuck Brown and several fans. The coordinated push begins in March and will run for a two month period.
Adver- tising plans will include major buys in both radio and print, focusing on both consumer and trade publications with the marketing effort involving merchandising represen- tatives in every WEA branch across the country.
The merchandising has been set to begin in April and will run through the rest of the month. Album slicks, stickers, buttons, cubes, mobiles and 4x4 posters are to be utilized as part of the marketing campaign. Among the topics discussed were new issue policy and distribution, returns, back orders and special orders.
The double-LP is packaged in a single jacket with a sash-type window frame in the front. On the back, notes about each of the tunes are included. Capitol Records is putting out specially-packaged cassettes of the LP for promotional use and a merchandising and advertising tie-in with JBL Sound has been set up.
The cassette package comes in an over- sized coated-card stock box that resem- bles a paperback novel. It is only the second such promotional package launched by a major label. In Atlantic City is no specifically designated place for a piece to be affixed.
At the meeting, we began to lay the groundwork for change. Polydor, Columbia and Warner Bros. According to the executives sur- veyed, defects can pop up in any step of the record making process — from raw materials up through the packaged product.
The sooner we find the defects the less expensive it is, because there is less handling from that point on. A test pressing monitors the process of transferring the sound from tape to a lacquer master; this transference from a magnetic signal to a mechanically engraved signal essentially tests the cutting process.
The practice of issuing test press- ings came into existence as a means of in- suring that the finished record is an ac- curate reproduction of what went down in the studio. Many quality control experts find it necessary to visit the manufacturing plant itself, to inspect records while they are being pressed.
Other Q. Also, there is a national Q. They pointed out that since vinyl is a petroleum derivative, the problem reached its zenith in with the Arab oil embargo. Although the quality of vinyl seems to have improved of late, a new problem seems to have crop- ped up in the form of master lacquers.
In the last few months suppliers have had complications, so the plants have had problems processing the lacquers. And when you do that, you in- crease quality control problems. They also agreed that all things considered, record buyers today are getting a good value for their money.
According to Westbrook of MCA. Manufacturing, as a whole, is very concerned about turning out quality records. They work very hard to make a better product, and they are spending a lot of money doing it. In addition to enrolling himself, Jones also signed up his entire staff as BMA members.

Finally deciding that it was better off as an independently distributed label, CTI declared Chapter XI in order to get a breathing space to build it- self up again.
At the same time, the label obtained letters of credit from some of its distributors which were used to help borrow money. Supports Indie Distributors In light of the support of independent dis- tributors for CTI, it is not surprising that the label has a strong faith in the future of in- dependent distribution.
Jerry Wagner, president of CTI, also af- firmed his belief in indie distributors. Con- trary to popular belief, he said, "Indepen- dents pay as well as majors do. Pickwick all branches.

With a Sony PCM system, you can stop waiting for that someday to happen. And start recording now. So instead of dwelling on how digital can improve the sound of your recordings, we'd rather dwell on how Sony— and only Sony— has finally made digital performance live up to its promise.
Consequently, the dynamic range of the two track PCM is greater than 90dB. Frequency response is 20 to 20kHz. The total harmonic distortion of the PCM is inaudible over the entire audio spectrum.
There is no measurable wow and flutter. And considering that Sony video recorders are virtually immune to this problem in the first place, the chances of it plaguing your sessions are all but negligible.
Because digital quality doesn't deteriorate from one tape generation to another, the PCM lets you make generation after generation of lac- quers, all with direct-to-disc quality— but without any limitation on the number of lacquers you can press. Unlike other digital equipment, the PCM is actually available for delivery today. Not six months from now. Or "when we finally get all the bugs out. Besides the quality and reliability Sony equip- ment is legendary for, we've set up a hour digital hot line to service our customers.
And we intend to continue our exhaustive research in digital audio— and share future insights with the growing Sony digital family. You may think you've heard a lot about digital in the past.
