The Record Labels Resources Thread

Que:
Fellow GMG'ers,

A new thread with the purpose of recommending interesting labels and providing links to relevant online resources where we can see, listen to, or buy these recordings.

Naturally the smaller, specialised "boutique" labels, sometimes hard to find and with rarities in terms of repertoire and performers will be of the most interest.

I give the floor to you and will from time to time post my own "special labels". :)

Que:
I'll start off with recommended two very interesting Czech labels, specialised in Czech Early Music & Baroque repertoire and HIPPI recordings.



Nibiru publishers also issues CD's.

Some Zelenka rarities have been critically acclaimed:






Arta Records is another beauty.

Loads of HIPPI stuff, for instance by the Antiquarius Quartet Praga or organist/ harpsichordist/ clavichordist/ pianist Jaroslav Tůma for instance! :)



In short: heaps and heaps of pure musical gold, ready to be dug up by GMG members! ;D

Bogey:
I have always been a big fan of the label:

Perfect timing Que!  I am about to snap up a couple from this label, that headquarters out of the U.S. and Canada:





Most of their covers for cds and lps were simply black and white.





I found them to be the Naxos of their time, where some of the artists were a bit more obscure.  They still exist as a place where you can find cds (like a record club, but I do not believe that they continue produce their own cds, which were, I believe just repackaging from other labels). 

The ones that they transferred that I have always been of superior sound quality.  I guess I enjoyed them also because my father-in-law had a few on the shelf and they just stood out.

Antoine Marchand:
Difficultly I can think a more appropriate label to be posted here than the Spanish Cantus Records. Going to "Catalogue"/"Audio" you can check out a lot of samples of their releases (basically Early and even Medieval Music).  :)
