Design: The Quality logo (previous page) and the King logo are tastefully combined.

History: Ron Hall, author of The CHUM Chart Book writes: "The Quality-King label was used only for King, Federal and De Luxe labels, which were all owned by King Records. The numbering system ran from 4001 through 4374. Quality appears to have lost the distribution of the King labels in 1956, when Bill Doggett's 'Honky Tonk' (King 4950) was released by Phonodisc as Regency 520. Selected King, Federal and Deluxe releases continued through 1962. Phonodisc's Delta label also had selected King, Federal and De Luxe releases right through to the last number, 3251."
