Parachute Album Discography
By Patrice Eyries, Mike Callahan, and David Edwards
Last update: January 20, 2006

Parachute Records, a Casablanca subsidiary, was run by Russ Regan, and located about a block from Casablanca's headquarters on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. Like Neil Bogart's initials being imbedded in the Casablanca Records catalog prefix (NBLP-), Regan's were likewise hidden in the prefix for Parachute Records.

Regan was a mover and shaker in the music business. He started as a promoter for Motown, working "Please Mr. Postman" as his first project, then moving to the Supremes and the Miracles. It was Regan who suggested in 1961 that the Pendletons change their name to the Beach Boys. He was the head of UNI Records, where he signed Neil Diamond and Elton John. He produced the soundtrack albums for Flashdance, Chariots of Fire, Spinal Tap, and The Karate Kid. And he was quoted in 1983 as saying that some day, you would be able to go to a concert, and buy the soundtrack before you leave.

Parachute Records operated from 1976 to 1979. They specialized in disco music.

Parachute was a Casablanca subsidiary: the label is blue and white and depicts an open white parachute on the top half of the label, with black lettering and "PARACHUTE" written in red lettering in the form of an arc on the top half of the label. The following text is written in the form of an arc at the bottom of the label: "Manufactured and Distributed by Casablanca Record and FilmWorks, Inc., 8255 Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, California 90046."
