INFINITY
RECORDS

Independent American label based in New York: Infinity Records was funded by MCA and was run by former Epic Records general manager Ron Alexenburg launched in 1977.  It issued twenty singles in Britain, all of them in 1979, and hit the Charts twice: with Spyro Gyra's, 'Morning Dance' (INF-111) and Rupert Holmes's, 'Escape' (INF-120).  Records came with a company sleeve and were numbered in the INF-100s.  Only one label design was used, but copies of 'Escape' can be found with monochrome labels and a simplified logo, presumably because of a shortage of the regular ones.  Manufacture and distribution were by CBS. In 1979 MCA had aborted Infinity and was cherry-picking from its artists; those whom it selected would appear on the main MCA label from then on.  On thw 8th of December 1979 Alexenburg took MCA to court on the grounds that their agreement prohibited the merger taking place, but no more was seen of Infinity.  The following year Alexenburg started a new label, Handshake, in partnership with Peter and Trudy Meisel of Hansa Records. Distributed By CBS Records.
