Co-releases during the 1980s

In about 1980 the major record companies in Australia formed an aliance. This saw the release of compilations with songs from those companies only. CBS, EMI, Festival, and WEA were involved. EMI were responsible for most of the pressings and the other companies had their logos on the covers. Occasionally these companies licenced material from the independants. This arrangement meant the end of licencing to K-tel, J&B, and the like. Numbers are in the EMI GIVE range, and the Festival range.
