Whatever happened to Raven Records???

Postby Walk In My Shadow » 03 Dec 2018, 19:53

You know, one of the best re-issue companies from Australia.

Especially good in artists' cross label compilations.

It's been months now their website is under 'construction' but nothing changes.

Any news from the specialists?

I don't know, but I'd be sorry to see them go. They always went that extra mile on their comps.

I checked with my journalist friend in Australia; says he hasn't heard anything from them in some time -- but he's going to check. Anybody else gets an update, please let us all know.

Raven went under distribution-wise when EMI snuffed it here locally.
I had to trace a lot of back catalogue in the USA in the last 5 to 8 years with ever decreasing results.
