Defunct and Current Aussie Record Labels

Defunct and Current Aussie Record Labels

Thursday, August 20, 2015


In May 1972 Tempo Records (TRS) established the new Image label, and it proved very successful, releasing singles and albums by noted Australian acts including Sundown, The Captain Matchbox Whoopee Band, Linda George, Broderick Smith and Kevin Borich, as well as international recordings released under licence from overseas labels. In 1974 John MacDonald purchased Image from TRS (which went out of business in mid-1976) and Image continues as a successful independent label to the present; it now includes the recording and publishing assets of Ron Tudor's Fable group, which were purchased in 1986.
