What was Kapp is now controlled by UMG via MCA, which bought Kapp in 1973.
Most of the things the Four Corners label distributed were the result of
licensing arrangements with labels based overseas, and those would have
expired long ago, but the path of ownership then would simply go in a
different direction. If it's copyright you're worried about, I wouldn't
touch it. But that's my only partly informed opinion, and tracking current
ownership of albums released on Four Corners would have to be conducted on
a case by case basis,
