The Atlantic Story

The House that Ahmet built

When Ahmet Ertegun died in December 2006 not only did Atlantic Records lose its Founding Chairman but the music world was robbed of a true original; an innovator, a pioneer and a gentleman, he was the well-respected and adored benefactor of hundreds of artists and colleagues. As the label he created this year celebrates its 60th anniversary we take a reverential look back on the highs and lows of the house that Ahmet built.
