Lou Adler was an old friend and lyric writing partner of Herb Alpert. Their original partnership was Herb B. Lou Productions.  After dissolving their partnership, Alpert teamed with Jerry Moss to create A&M Records. Adler went on to found Dunhill Records in 1964. Alfter Dunhill was sold in 1967, Adler founded Ode Records in 1968. In December 1976, Adler's distribution agreement with A&M ended and he moved Ode Records distribution to Epic Records. In January 1989, Adler reactivated the label now named Ode Sounds and Visuals.
