National Records was started in New York by Albert Green in 1945. Working as A&R men were Lee Magid, Bob Shad, Jesse Stone and Herb Abramson. Abramson moved on to Jubilee Records and also co-founded Atlantic Records with Ahmet Ertegün. In 1951 National ceased recording and Mercury Records bought the label. Running Mercury at that time was Irving Green, Albert's son. National's masters ended up in the possession of Savoy, which later reissued many of them.
