Correc-tone was owned by Wilbur Goldman and was based at 9031, 12th Street, Detroit. Later the label moved to 8912 Grand River Avenue, which later housed Magic City Records. The label design varied between a yellow background with black lettering to multi-coloured label mainly yellow and black ( with a serated edge effect) sometimes with blue lines. Practically all of the recordings on Correct-tone were local artists, some like Wilson Pickett, who joined the label from Lupine where he was a member of the Falcons. Danny Woods later joined Chairmen Of The Board. Theresa Lindsey moved to Golden World in 1966, then later back to 8912 Grand River Avenue with Ernest Burt's Magic City label.
