Casablanca Records was formed in 1973 and was run by Neil Bogart.
Casablanca's first big signing was Kiss. Casablanca Records became the most successful disco label when signing artists like Donna Summer, Village People, Brooklyn Dreams, Cher, and great P-Funk act Parliament.
Neil Bogart sold Casablanca to PolyGram in 1980. On May 8, 1982, Neil Bogart died of cancer. The label stopped releasing new material in 1984.
In 2004, the name was revived for a joint venture between Universal Music Group and Tommy Mottola. In a Billboard article, Mottola said that he chose the name as an homage to the original label, but that there was no direct connection between the old and new labels. Casablanca is now a part of Universal Motown Records Group.
Sublabels: Chocolate City, Earmarc Records, Oasis, Parachute Records:

My GOD, how did I miss this post?!?!
Dancer, that was awesome!!!!! It brought back memories of visiting the office during the hey day. I remember getting my acetate copy of "Take Me Home" as well as promo copies of "Bad Girls" "Hot Stuff" "Village People" and so many others. I really thank you for the flashback and your time investment in this post.
