I can't add anything for the artist Charles Farrington...but i can tell you a few things about International Record Co, Chicago. And maybe that will help you /others find Charles.

International Record Co (IRC) operated (simultaneously addressed at times)from 1649 W.Evergreen, Chicago 60622 and 5619 W. Division, Chicago.

The prexy was Vern Ruvalds, Chairman Jerome V. Man, GM Leonard March, sales mgr Bill Beyer. Vern Ruvalds was a respected music man and as early as 1962 addressed the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences. These folks (some of) also had some connection with Winner Music (Dorothy March see Leonard March ref- also wrote and had Winner published credits).

Vern was a hands-on engineer ;see The Chymes, 'Dancing Shoes', and owned Chicago Stereo Mastering.

you can read other stuff about IRC (that isn't included in my bit) here -https://www.bsnpubs.com/chicago/irc/irc.html
