Coronet Records


Coronet Records
Louis Armstrong's Mack The Knife, with octagonal label

Coronet Records was a record label in Australia, based in Sydney, NSW. The label that operated from the early 1950s until around 1960 was recognizable by its famous octagonal label.

Until early 1960 Coronet was the principal house label of the Australian Record Company (ARC), releasing material licenced from international labels – primarily CBS Records in the USA well as material recorded by Australian artists.

In 1960 ARC was taken over by CBS Records (although the company continued to trade as ARC until the late 1970s) and the Coronet label was phased out in favour of the new CBS Australia label, which used the famous CBS/Columbia "walking eye" logo.
