Mel:

Creed Taylor, after his sucessful businuess acumen and productions from his major label outings (Impulse!/ABC-Paramount: 1960-late 61; Verve/MGM*: 1962-1967), he went to join Herb Alpert & Jerry Moss' A&M Records for a three-year stint under the A & M/CTI banner. Make note a stark difference of the album covers, because the A & M releases (photography by Pete Turner) had a white border, in contrast to its later years which were black,and in the late 1970's/early 80's, red.
CTI went independent until 1974 when Motown became its distributor.

Here's a webpage link that's has a well-defined detail of Creed Taylor: www.dougpayne.com/cti.htm

Derrald!

*MGM bought the Verve label from the late Norman Granz to lauch its Jazz division. Currently owned by Universal Music Group
