Description:Black & White Records was a Los Angeles, California based record company, active in recording blues and country and western artists during the 1940s and 1950s. It also had offices at 2117 Foster Avenue, Brooklyn, New York. It was acquired by Capitol Records. Black & White Records began as a family-owned business in 1945.
