Dot Records is a historic American record label, originally an independent label founded by Randy Wood in Gallatin, Tennessee, and active between 1950 and 1979. In its early years, the label specialized in artists from around Tennessee. Then it branched out to include musicians and singers from across the United States. It recorded a variety of country music, rhythm & blues, polkas & waltzes, gospel music, rockabilly, pop music, and early rock & roll.
In 1957, Wood sold ownership of the label to Paramount Pictures, but he remained the president of the company for another decade. Dot Records then began to release soundtrack albums. (Wikipedia)
