megadisc classics, originally established to present the works of Karel Goeyvaerts, has since become a very good label for new music and music from the 20th century.  Some notable selections from the catalog include a number of discs by The Barton Workshop performing John Cage.

FYI I just got a letter from PENTATONE informing me that from now on they should always be referred to in all-caps as PENTATONE rather than PentaTone.

I second Zig Zag Territories. Every disc I've purchased has had wonderful playing and exemplary sound.







and a few others.

Not to mention the frequently encountered original artwork, like on this Mozart disk which is a treasury of it!

CHANDOS is playing with their site.  It's in 'beta' right now.
I get a lot of '404 errors' even with caches of the old site.
Anyway:

I'll be glad when Chandos finishes their site. It looks quite nice.

Thirded. But of course Zig Zag is no more ... or rather: It's now all Alpha... part of the mothership (Outhere)'s cleanup.

It looks like Chandos have totally redone their website and are selling other labels (and downloads from other labels). But what REALLY interested me - they appear to have all the booklets to accompany the discs to even the non-Chandos labels. I don't know how far it extends, but I checked a disc from BIS, Naxos and Halle, and all three had the booklet! I can't find booklets on the Naxos website (just the back cover) so this is a major resource for those of us looking for them. I may post this elsewhere as this thread doesn't get much action.
Offenbach gets a raw deal in recordings considering his talent! For a discussion of this outstanding composer too little recorded: http://www.good-music-guide.com/community/index.php/topic,5572.

Here is a rather obscure label that has some interesting stuff, especially the electronic music collections. It's Bvhaast records.
