Description:
Colpix Records was the first recording company for Columbia Pictures-Screen Gems. Colpix got its name from combining Columbia (Col) and Pictures (Pix), and was founded by Stu Phillips in 1958, and was based in New York City. Lester Sill later headed the label, after breaking with Philles Records partner Phil Spector.

Artists for the label included Lou Christie, James Darren, Paul Petersen, Shelley Fabares (the latter two also costars of The Donna Reed Show) and the Marcels. Two of the label's best known number one hits on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Charts were "Blue Moon" by the Marcels in the spring of 1961 (also a number one in the UK, where Colpix was licenced to Pye International), and Shelley Fabares' "Johnny Angel" in the spring of 1962. Bernadette Castro also recorded for the label, "Get Rid of Him"/"A Girl in Love Forgives" and "His Lips Get in the Way"/"Sportscar Sally". Singer Jo Ann Greer, who dubbed several of the actresses at Columbia Pictures, recorded two albums with the studio's musical director, Morris Stoloff: Soundtracks, Voices and Themes and The Naked City, an original film noir musical that also featured the label's James Darren.

Colpix also released a soundtrack album of Hanna-Barbera cartoons. It included actual dialogue tracks from Huckleberry Hound, Yogi Bear, and Pixie and Dixie, and the recording was narrated by Daws Butler, speaking in the voice of Huckleberry Hound.
