Everest Records was a stereophonic record label based in Bayside, Long Island started by Harry D. Belock and Bert Whyte in May 1958. The idea for starting a label was related by electronics inventor Harry Belock who also worked on sound films in Hollywood in the 1930s. Bert Whyte was the producer and engineer. Bert's wife, Ruth, was the assistant engineer. Belock and Whyte decided to record music on 35 mm magnetic film, which they believed was an improvement over half-inch tape. Westrex built this equipment to their specifications, at a cost then of about $20,000 for each recorder. Neumann U 47 microphones were purchased to go with the film recorders. Everestís recording philosophy was to make minimally-miked three-channel recordings using the same 35 mm film recorders everywhere.
One of the original machines was used by Wilma Cozart Fine to remaster Mercury 35 mm recordings for CD in the 1990s.
