Kapp Records was founded  in 1954 by David Kapp, brother of Jack Kapp (who had set up American Decca Records in 1934). Kapp licensed its records to London Records for release in the UK.
In 1967, David Kapp sold his label to MCA and became a division of Universal City Records.
In 1972, MCA released the last Kapp Record. The catalog and artist roster was absorbed by MCA Records.
