Vendetta was an A&M Records imprint activated in 1988 and abandoned in mid-1990, probably as a result of the sale of A&M Records to PolyGram which initiated efforts to achieve cost savings. Five A&M Records employees in the New York office oversaw the release and promotion of 39 12-inch dance singles and one compilation album. The singles were all issued in generic sleeves.
