Update

With all the recent changes (they are ongoing) I’ve been informed that the front page is not currently visible. This is something I’ll come back to and rebuild soon. In the meantime please use the links at the bottom of the pages. I update these as each group of pages is updated.

Currently the following are complete:

K-tel early
K-tel All NA, TA, WA

CBS
EMI
Festival
(Calendar)
Kinney

Astor
Fable
Chart
Concept
Go!!
Havoc
Now
Select
W&G

Our next task is to review the links, images, and tags – some artists have multiple spellings. We have also discovered that some of the Next and Previous navigation is skipping pages. The pages are there, but there is an issue in the database. As I’m back to working on other projects these fixes may take time. I’ll then be working on improving the theme so it works better on mobile devices…

There are around 700 pages to update – so please be patient. Refresh pages that you have previously visited.

Enjoy. 11 April 2016

There is little information on Chart Records other than it was a co-enterprise with the Wong Brothers and Harry M. Miller. They used the ATA studios (owned by Col Joye) in inner Sydney. The label existed from 1970 to 1971 or maybe 1973, and were pressed and distributed by Festival. They had some well respected artists and bands on their roster. This included Autumn who went on to do a highly regarded album with Warner Bros.

Chart released at least 13 singles, and a couple of e.p’s. A vindictive release from Autumn, with singles and some discarded tracks, was the labels only single artist album.

Despite what sellers claim on e-Bay, it’s not that hard to obtain in good condition, and is an essential part of Australian music history.

Chart – Great Hits of Australia’s Big Stars

There is little information on Chart Records other than it was a co-enterprise with the Wong Brothers and Harry M. Miller. They used the ATA studios (owned by Col Joye) in inner Sydney. However, they existed from 1970 to about 1973, were pressed and distributed by Festival, and had some well respected artists (Jeff StJohn) and bands (Levi Smith’s Clefs) on their roster. This included Autumn who went on to do a highly respected album with Warner Bros.

This compilation has most of the labels roster. Thirteen singles, two ep’s, one album, and this compilation were the sum total output.

A vindictive album, Song to Raymondo (SCHL-934254) with singles and some discarded material, by Autumn was the labels only single artist album, and was released after they moved to Warner Brothers.

Despite what sellers claim on e-Bay, it’s not that hard to obtain in good condition, and is an essential part of Australian music history.
