Crown Records was the doing of the infamous (depending on who you talk to) Bihari brothers. These men made a living exploiting musicians for their cheap vinyl record empire- which started out as a semi-reputable R&B label through Modern Records. However, even then, their practices of listing themselves as song co-writers when they copyrighted their artist's music before releasing their records foreshadowed the sketchy behavior they engaged in to make a quick buck. By keeping as much of the record sales revenue to themselves, they made a living at the expense of the artists their records featured.
Between 1957-1972 Crown records turned out around 740 unique album releases. The vast majority of which is already online by those that claim to have ownership rights of the material. The label issued records of every popular music genre by obscure no-names and older material of more prominent name artists. The odds of one finding a Crown Record at your nearest thrift store is pretty decent; they made them deep and sold them cheap after all.
