Friday, February 27, 2015


ATA records wad set up in 1966 and and finished in 1989 making it one of  the longest surviving Australian Independent labels. It has released in excess of 200 issues. ATA was owned and operated by Col Joye (Jacobson) (singer) & brother, Kevin Jacobson (Tour Promoter). In order to have total control over their material Col and Kevin were pioneer Australian Rock’n’Roll artists, Col being the performer and Kevin and another brother were members of the backing band “The Joy Boys” who had hits in their own right. They and Johnny O’Keefe were the biggest stars in Sydney during that time and Col, Joy Boys and O’Keefe all recorded for Festival.
