Founded in 1976 by Marvin Schlachter. Prelude achieved international success within its first few releases, which is not uncommon for an upstart independent label. The magic was, that like a runaway (D-) train, that momentum continued upward and onward for a decade. Till its demise in 1986, Prelude led the world in innovations. They pioneered the 2-12" d.j. pak, taking an entire album, remixing it and placing it on 2 singles for club promotion. And their later standard of pressing promotional copies on 45 rpm (for sound quality), as opposed to their commercial 33 1/3 rpm counterparts. Their early style was geared towards higher energy. As time and musical tastes changed, their sound became funkier and more "street" oriented. Towards the end of its life Prelude suffered from poor distribution. The later releases are harder to find, probably due to limited pressings. Musical highpoints from Prelude include: Canadian teen chanteuse France Joli, ex-"Harlette" Sharon Redd, "D-Train" frontman James Williams, and Chaka Khan's little sister...Taka Boom! So sit back and enjoy the fruits of my endless journey to chart Prelude.......
