~ Label


Founded in NYC by Archie Bleyer in 1960 as a Cadence subsidiary (Bob Altshuler as general manager, Nat Hentoff as producer and Frank Gauna as a design artist), and active until 1961.
Barnaby reissued parts of its catalog for a time (and Victor as well in Japan apparently), and a number of pirate replicas from italy have been spotted at least until 1989 when Candid was bought and revived by Alan Bates (from Black Lion Records) in 1989 UK.
Note that strangely Candid was given Black Lion label code in 1989 (LC 02940).
Nowadays both issues new releases and continue to sell its back catalog.
Has extended operations to east-asia. Is fully independent today.
