NORTHEAST
Record Labels

         
         


  • PAISLEYHAZE mission: To document the fertile landscape of the Northeast's many independent record labels from the 50s, 60s, and early 70s, including the multitude of labels that sprouted up in New York City and its suburbs.
  • Criteria for inclusion: The label must have had at least 2 releases by 2 different artists. We are not doing (yet) the more prolific labels like SUE or BIGTOP, or the thousands of one-shot labels.
  • These lists are fun to check out for familiar names and song titles as well as the odd and the obscure, and are presented here for entertainment and informational purposes only. To see records for sale please go back to the home page.
  • Readers are invited to E-MAIL US HERE with questions, additions, and corrections. Anyone with any knowledge of the Northeast / NY music industry is especially welcome to contact us. Your input will make this an interesting site. Thanks !!
  • Suggestions as to more labels to include will be appreciated, especially if a discography is available.
  • We are interested in purchasing any records not on these lists, and many that are.
  • This site is in a permanent state of construction, so everything may not be working correctly. Feel free to email us if you see anything out of kilter, so we can fix it.
  • Clicking on a label name in the below list will take you to a discography of titles, covering 45 rpm singles.

    Below is a list of 50s & 60s, NE / NY labels that may have had more than one release.
