Great Digtal Reissue Label: Anthology Recordings

Anthology Recordings is cool. Great website, good stuff. I'd say this is the first quality digital imprint I've seen so far. I just downloaded the elusive Moondog release (featuring Quicksand, Gorilla Biscuits, and Rival Schools' own Walter Schreifels) . Good luck to all involved!

From their about page:

About Anthology Recordings: beyond the mainstream, beyond boundaries.

Anthology Recordings is the world’s first ever all digital reissue label, its goal to provide an online outlet for rare and out-of-print music of all eras, genres and cultures.

In the Fall of 2005, as the demand for digital music was mounting exponentially, Anthology Recordings founder Keith Abrahamsson (an A&R executive with New York City-based indie label Kemado Records) was struck by the conspicuous absence of obscure, but influential music titles on most high volume online retailers – an injustice to both these artists and their prospective fans, which he grew determined to address.

Beyond the mainstream and beyond all boundaries; the Anthology Recordings team pledges to continually seek out music’s underrated, forgotten, or overlooked, and help make the digital music landscape richer, more complete, and definitely more eclectic with every release.
