Music From The House That Ahmet Built by Various Artists
Released: May 2007
Label: Rhino Atlantic
See the urbane-looking Turk on the cover? Atlantic Records' Ahmet Ertegun decided that black music was American music and helped transform the international pop landscape. A true rarity in the music business, Ahmet was a man whose honesty, loyalty and class equaled his refined taste. But with taste as good as his, he could've been an SOB and still be remembered as a giant. He made stars of Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, the Coasters and, gulp, Foreigner. He also distributed Stax Records globally and helped turn a teen idol named Bobby Darin into a musical chameleon the entire family could dig.
