We are now at the end of our first decade and Classic Records continues to set the pace in the newly restimulated LP reissues and the analogue resurgence. Nearly 200 titles later we are older, hopefully wiser, and if nothing else we are a lot more humble. We have endured criticism, and had an overwhelming level of support from our customers. Oh how we have grown!

This past year has seen Classic Records increasing the broad mix of titles in our reissue catalogues. We, of course, continue with the series that started us out – the Living Stereo Classical series of releases, and completed the first ten records from the Verve Jazz catalogue. Not content to stand on our laurels, we added ten titles from the Living Stereo Popular catalogue (which included four eminent and highly collectible titles, the legendary Belafonte Live at Carnegie Hall , Dick Schory and many more!). In June we announced a twelve-title contract from the Columbia and Epic Jazz catalogues ,which began with Dave Brubeck’s incomparable Take 5 , and will continue with albums from Duke Ellington, Kenny Burrell, Ben Webster and Charlie Rouse. Please expect even more impressive reissues to be announced throughout 2005.

We also launched a new sub label – Rock the House Records, breaking new ground in the reissue field by licensing current or recently released rock-pop titles on vinyl. Some of our biggest success have been with the newest Sarah McLachlan LP, and the latest release from our old audiophile favorites. Other new releases included Santana, Dido, Jimmy Hendrix, Led Zeppelin and the Buena Vista Social Club. Watch out as Rock the House brings more “big guns” to you on vinyl in 2003 and beyond.

This past year also saw us involved in two original recordings: Art Davis: A Time Remembered and through our new division – Classic Music Productions. Expect more of the same in 2004.

Recently we launched Classic Music Direct to offer our customers the option of dealing with us directly, and to supplement a distribution system to expand our market base. The Classic team is focused on providing the highest level of customer service possible, so give us a try.

Classic Records has grown to more than 10 people… each making sure that we uphold our commitment to quality.

Unfortunately we were forced by the end of 2009 to stop our productions as the owners of our licences took over their using of the musical material.

At the end of the day, we hope that we have succeed in our quest to bring great music to people. Thanks, as always, for your helpful suggestions and support.

Happy Listening!
