Defunct and Current Aussie Record Labels

Defunct and Current Aussie Record Labels

Sunday, October 25, 2015


The Leedon label was instigated by legendary American early rock 'n roll show promoter Lee Gordon, then resident in Australia. His partner in the label was the even more legendary Aussie rock pioneer Johnny O'Keefe whose own releases appeared on the label starting in September 1959. The final release was fittingly JO'K's re-issue of "She's My Baby" in July 1969. Among many locally well known antipodeans, Bee Gees made their own earliest recordings for the label from March 1963 until 1966.
