The PC's Soviet?

Yep, Apple Records. Actually, it was founded by Paul Macarthney (however
you spell it) and John Lenon, the Beatles. Their idea was to have people
coming in, and doing what they wanted, getting profits for their records,
and not having to go beg the brass at some corporation. They lost more and
more money, into the 80's, when they were "eaten up" by Capitol records.
The Beatles CD's available now from capitol still feature the Apple logo
(not Apple Computer), and the CD's also have it.
