Legacy Recordings is Sony Music Entertainment's catalog division. It was founded in 1990 by CBS Records (renamed Sony Music in 1991) under the leadership of Jerry Shulman, Richard Bauer, Gary Pacheco and Amy Herot (then the Marketing Development Department) to handle reissues of recordings from the vast catalogues of Columbia Records, Epic Records and associated labels. The division now additionally handles the archives of Sony Music's RCA, J Records, Windham Hill, RCA, Arista, LaFace, Jive, Buddah Records, Philadelphia International Records, as well as Sony BMG Nashville. It also handles the catalog of recordings produced by Phil Spector.
This is not to be confused with the defunct British independent label Legacy Records.
