Atlantic Ocean

The Atlantic Ocean is the second-largest of the world's oceanic divisions. With a total area of about 106.4 million square kilometres (41.1 million square miles), it covers approximately twenty percent of the Earth's surface and about twenty-six percent of its water surface area. The first part of its name refers to the Atlas of Greek mythology, making the Atlantic the "Sea of Atlas".

  • Nearly sixty years later, after Ruth Brown had gone toe-to-toe with Ahmet in a very public controversy over royalties owed her by Atlantic, he would say, “Ruth Brown was kind of a shitty singer but she had good rhythm and she thought of herself as a pop singer. The reason I signed her up was that she sang this song ‘So Long’ imitating the way Little Miss Cornshucks used to sing it. I couldn’t find Miss Cornshucks, who had sort of disappeared, but Ruth Brown must have heard her singing that song and she would imitate her.”
