Majestic Records

Majestic Records was a mid-20th century record label based in New York City. The label enjoyed its greatest commercial success in the 1940s until expansion and supplying its distributors with pressings of discs created financial problems; the label folded in 1948.

For a time in the 1940s, bandleader Ben Selvin headed the label's artists & repertory. The company was headed by former New York City mayor Jimmy Walker.

Artists who recorded on Majestic included Jimmie Lunceford, Louis Prima, Bud Freeman, Slim Bryant, Eddy Howard, the Four Shades of Rhythm, the Four Suns, George Olsen, George Paxton and His Orchestra, Ray McKinley, Phil Regan, the Jones Brothers, Ella Logan, Jan Peerce, Jane Froman, Foy Willing and the Riders of the Purple Sage, the Merry Macs, and Bob Johnston.
