Indies: The Ultimate Guide to Independent Record Labels & Artists by Norman Schreiber.

It is a simple and handy access guide to some of the best music around. Explore the indies and find treasures of rock, folk, classical, world music , jazz, new age, and more. Acting as your curator, Norman Schreiber cuts through the thicket of independent labels and and presents the best, the most interesting, the most fascinating, the most unusual, the most noteworthy, the quirky, the sublime, the obscure.

Many of these labels offer authentic, haunting, special, honest, startling, special, weird and/or creative music -- music that often becomes a deep part of the listener's life and psyche. Each entry includes the label's name and address, type of music offered, artist roster names, download sites, email address, business contacts and background information.

This book updates The Ultimate Guide to Independent Record Labels & Artists (pictured above), published by Pharos Books in 1992.  The new edition will be published by Topquark Press as an e-book, a format that makes it even easier to use.

In the meantime, the text of the original work is posted on this Web site. (See lnks at top or bottom of page above.). 




  •  If you have suggestions about appropriate entries for the revised edition, please feel free to pass that information on to me via e-mail.

  • If your label is mentioned, and you have some changes for me, please share whatever you can that will help people find and appreciate your work.

  • And if you want updates on the upcoming edition Just click right  here, honey!



The good news is that this archive edition is a snapshot of Indies circa 1992. The bad news is that while many labels have shown remarkable stability, this is a snapshot of Indies circa 1992. Names, addresses, phone numbers, prices, etc.  have certainly changed in many cases. Some labels have joined up with majors. Others are in label heaven.  Also gone are some of the amazing, driven people who found, saved and delivered this music to us.

The entire text of the book's first edition will remain on this site for awhile. Gradually it will be replaced by a newsletter. The newsletter will present information about new and interesting labels. It might even offer some news.
