NOTE : From 1960 on, most Crest singles display a small badge reading 'A CIRCA release' or 'An ARDCO release'. ARDCO stood for 'Allied Record Distribution Company' ; it was located at 1041 No. Las Palmas Avenue in Hollywood. CIRCA surely stood for something alike.
In his liner notes to the RockStar CD, Rob Finnis explains that Crest had in fact 'assigned the manufacture and production of its product to the Allied pressing plant'. These same badges (a circle with a sort of ribbon underneath) can be found on a variety of labels such as Pike, Heb and Jan-Ell.
