Queen : Biography

on November 14, 2010 - 12:00am

In 1972, Jac Holzman wrote an internal memo to his staff: “I have seen the future of pop music, and it is a band called Queen.”

Holzman fought hard to sign Queen against stiff competition from Columbia Records. He acquired them for Elektra in all major territories outside of Europe, where they were signed to EMI.  Holzman never doubted that Queen would make a worldwide impression, seeing them as dramatic and self-assured with a strong group dynamic not dissimilar to The Doors.

Harry Chapin : Biography

on November 14, 2010 - 12:00am

Harry Chapin enjoyed a full creative life before his recording career with Elektra took flight. Immensely talented, as both a writer and filmmaker, he earned an Academy Award nomination in 1968 for Legendary Champions, a documentary film about boxing that he wrote and directed. Chapin was simultaneously working the clubs as the Chapin Brothers (with brothers Tom and Stephen), but by 1971, found his special niche as a writer and performer. He formed a group designed to convey the inner light of his storytelling songs through an unusual line-up: two guitars with bass and cello accompaniment.
