Company Sleeves 1965-1968

......

Dover Records was a distributor for New Orleans labels founded by Cosimo Matassa in 1965.  Aaron Neville's "Tell It Like It Is" (# 2 hit in 1967) was just too big for Matassa to handle and the New Orleans banks were not about to help out. With distributors not paying up and the banks turning down loans, the cash was spread too thin. This ended Par-Lo and many of the other Dover-distributed small labels soon thereafter. The company collapsed in 1968.
Many of the labels had the company's logo on the side of the label.
