Joe's Music Rack
Part of


West New York, New Jersey (?)

Started in 1958, ACORN RECORDS - as a subsidiary of Eli Oberstein's Rondo Records.

Its early catalog were largely reissues of material from Rondo or other of Oberstein's Record Corporation of America labels, although not always credited to the same artists. When Rondo was sold to P.R.I. in 1961, Acorn was included, and reissues of material from old Tops or other PRI labels soon appeared. Acorn was assigned to Hudson Record Company in New York, which was also part of the PRI corporate group, for pressings, etc.

Of all budget labels under PRI, Acorn was by far "the" worst. Jacket notes were poorly written and the proof reader (what proof reader?) for the printer - did not proof read. At times the platter label read something altogether differant than the jacket. I have two platter, what the both labels and the jackers are differant and the platter is not at all what the labels read.

Jacket Logo

The Acorn platter label was blue with silver print. The ACORN logo (with an acorn inside the letter "O") bends around the top edge of the label.
The address of the label is given on the back of the jacket as "West New York, New Jersey" (wherever that is).
