American.  Curtom was Curtis Mayfield's label; it was formed in 1968, and it was, unsurprisingly, dedicated to Soul music. Curtom products were initially handled by Buddah in the States; Warner took over distribution in 1975 and continued to carry out that task until the company stopped issuing records, in 1979. In Britain the Curtom label came on the scene in 1975, through WEA; its singles shared a numerical series with those of Warner Brothers.  It registered in the Singles Chart in 1975 with The Impressions', 'First Impressions' (K16638), and in 1978 with 'If My Friends Could See Me Now' by Linda Clifford (K-17163). During the Buddah era, Curtom products appeared on that label over here. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
