Ace Of Hearts was a budget reissue label from Decca Records, active from the early 1960s until the mid-1970s in the United Kingdom. The sound and pressing quality of these budget releases is generally very good. Decca used the Ace Of Hearts imprint to re-release American recordings from their back catalogue, while sister label Ace Of Clubs did exactly the same for UK material.
The U.S. Ace Of Hearts label was started in 1978 out of Boston, and is completely unrelated to the Decca subsidiary. Boston's Ace of Hearts was founded by producer Rick Harte to record and release Boston area post-punk and garage rock bands, most notably Mission of Burma and Lyres.
