In 1959, Florence Greenberg sold Tiara Records along with The Shirelles' recording contract for $4000 
to Decca Records. When The Shirelles made no success for Decca, they were given back to Greenberg.
With the $4000 she got from Decca, she decided to start a new label - Scepter Records.
In 1976, Florence Greenberg decided to retire from the business and sold her record labels
to Springboard International. When Springboard went bankrupt, Gusto Records acquired the catalog.
