Cadence Records was founded in december 1952 by Archie Bleyer, who had been the musical director and orchestra leader for Arthur Godfrey in 1952. The departures of the Everly Brothers in 1960 (to Warner Bros.) and Andy Williams in 1961 (to Columbia), along with radical changes in public taste and the music business brought on by the 1964 British invasion led to closedown of the company september 25th 1964,
When Andy Williams asked about buying his masters, Archie Bleyer wanted Williams to buythe entire Cadence catalogue - which he did. Williams reissued his old albums on Columbia and formed Barnaby Records to manage the Cadence catalogue.
