Closing Logo Group

Atlantic Records Video[]

1st Logo (1987-1990)[]

Nickname: "The A and the Fan"

Logo: On a black background, a flash brings forth four spheres of light which move to all 4 sides of the screen. They move to form a box, which reveals the letter A and a "fan" via a Venetian blind effect. Another sphere of light places a line under the A and the "fan". As the word "ATLANTIC" appears via a Venetian blind effect, the background turns into a blue-black gradient and a (R) trademark symbol appears to the upper right of the "fan". A small flash of light brings forth the word "VIDEO", colored in tan.

FX/SFX: Great animation.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Rare, seen on releases of the period. One of the more notable releases was Phil Collins: The Singles Collection.

2nd Logo (1998)[]

Logo: On a black-blue gradient background, a black-and-white Atlantic Records logo (in its 1966 appearance) slides down from the top of the screen to the middle, rotating counterclockwise a little as it does so.

FX/SFX: The logo sliding.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Was spotted on Tori Amos: The Complete Videos 1991-1998. May be seen on some other Atlantic tapes from the period.

Atlantic DVD[]

(May 26, 2003-????)[]

Logo: Inside a turbine, with smoke blowing out the side, a black Atlantic Records print logo can be seen at an angle. A light moves through it, starting at the upper right corner of the box and stopping at the registered trademark symbol. When it does so, it flashes and a red version of the print logo turns and faces the viewer. A black "V" flips in and zooms out, with two "D"s following. Those also turn red, forming "DVD", and the print logo slowly zooms out.

FX/SFX: The smoke, the light, and the logo forming.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Very rare. Its only known appearances on are Led Zeppelin: DVD and an unknown INXS title. This might also be seen on other Atlantic music DVDs.
