Apple records was launched in 1968 with Ron Kass as Managing Director, Peter Asher as the company A&R man and Tony Bramwell in charge of promoting the products. Apple advertisements and posters announced the venture and asked for tapes to review, but very few artists were signed as a result. Most artists signed by Apple Records were from personal preferences of the Directors. The first artist signed to this label was James Taylor. Badfinger was a true success story of Apple records. Mary Hopkin, James Taylor, and Billy Preston had their moments in the sun. Of course the Beatles and their solo Apple Records faired well, but Apple Records only received 2 non-Beatles gold record awards (Mary Hopkin "Those Were The Days" and Badfinger "Come And Get It"). Apple Records lasted from August 1968 through May 1976.
