Atlantic Timeline - 1960

Atlantic Timeline is an ongoing column where we highlight some of the most exciting moments from Atlantic Records artists' musical legacy. This installment covers 1960.

JOHN COLTRANE records his My Favorite Things album in October, his first complete album with the legendary Coltrane Quartet.

THE DRIFTERS mark their one-and-only chart-topper with “Save The Last Dance For Me.” The track is cut at Atlantic Studio 3, now featuring the groundbreaking TOM DOWD invention, sliding faders.

The father and daughter team of RUFUS AND CARLA THOMAS’ recording of “Cause I Love You” attracts Atlantic’s attention and leads to a vital new production and distribution relationship with the Memphis record label soon to be known as STAX.

Jazz flautist HERBIE MANN releases his first of what will be over 50 albums for Atlantic, Common Ground.
