Welcome to the Continental Records Company Web Site

On February 8th 2023 Continental Records lost its greatest asset.

After serving the music needs of collectors, musicians, radio stations, hobbyists, and jukebox owners for over 50 years, Neil Patte passed away at home.

At the current time, we are not taking any orders until we take inventory, and determine the future path for Continental Records Company. We will keep you informed of our decisions.

If you have any questions, comments or memories about the business or about Neil, we'd be pleased to hear from you at conrecs@gocontinental.com.

Neil will be missed by many.

About Continental Records Company

Zircon Records Paper Sleeve

We commenced operation in 1971 with the purchase of all the remaining 45 RPM stock of Zirkon Record Company of Montreal. Zirkon produced records between 1958 and 1963 with licensing from many USA labels including Roulette, End, Gone and Coed
We are not a "vinyl store" or a "collector store." We do not specialize in used, rare or "original label products - we are a 45 RPM record sales company that features one of the world's largest catalogs and inventory of brand new 45 RPM records and thousands of unique oldies CD titles.
