area251records is a label for the obscure, the lost, the forgotten...
we seek out projects that have never been reissued for digital or vinyl
unfortunately, over time, master tapes have been destroyed or lost for most and
we have to restore and remaster these tracks from the best available sources
remember, there are not always analog tapes for everything, but we do find
multiple sources to extract the best possible version
we license mechanical rights so the songwriters get paid, and seek out sound
recording rights administrators to see if tapes are available... and we try to locate
the artists and producers themselves to have their involvement
we have been fortunate to work with many families and artists in pursuit of making
these great songs available...
so, discover some 'new' music today at our shop and support your local music label!
