==What is the purpose of this page?==
 
 
 
Help moderators (who do work documenting labels and catalogs informations) to quickly find:
 
* labels names and possibly official web site, wikipedia page and/or discographic work site about it
 
* labels periods of activity and relevant historical facts
 
* labels catalogs
 
* labels relations with other labels
 
 
 
==Ultimate Goal==
 
 
 
Ultimately, I'm dreaming that label / catalog# become database entries (which is apparently scheduled), and that labels become entities (like artists) on which we could have both advanced relationships and annotation.
 
 
 
Meanwhile, this page wants to partly serve this purpose and be a time saver for these moderators who need it.
 
 
 
==Introductory Note==
 
 
 
Jazz golden era is probably 45-70.
 
 
 
The 70s period resort mainly to Free-Jazz (the kind of stuff only a few crazes like [[User:dmppanda|dmppanda]] listen to), while the pre-40s period, although very interesting, lacks recorded material (most of what's available being reissued in anthologies by specialized labels).
 
 
 
There's of course a modern jazz, both by (quite old now) veterans, and by talented newcomers, but you better ask [[Yllona Richardson]] for that.
 
 
 
During a period (until 1990), labels buying other labels tend to simply reissue the bought catalogs under their own name ([[Jazz/Labels/Fantasy|Fantasy]] reissues used the name [[Jazz/Labels/Original Jazz Classics|Original Jazz Classics]]).
 
 
 
Recently though, now that all is left is 3 or 4 conglomerates which gobbled everything, such holdings tend to reissue stuff under the original label name, or even produce new stuff under that name, which of course are not to be confused with the "historical" labels/periods.
 
 
 
==Editing notes==
 
 
 
* "Country" should be 2 letter iso codes.
 
* "Production type" should be: original, reissue, bootleg (or combination of these, using slash as separators), or holding
 
* Maybe "founded by" could point to [[Jazz/Labels/Jazz/People/Name Of The Buddy|/Jazz/People/NameOfTheBuddy]] (as we can't create them in the db...)?
 
* Any mention of another label should link to the corresponding page, even if it doesn't exist yet
 
 
 
==Editing ressources==

* [http://www.rlabels.com/ http://www.rlabels.com/] and [http://www.allrecordlabels.com/ http://www.allrecordlabels.com/] may help

==Disclaimer==
 
 
 
This is work in progress. Not only data changes quickly, but I may rehaul the presentation of it in the pages, as I'm actually dissatisfied by the form of it. I will probably also present the label list in a hierarchy showing "own" relationships. Any other ideas/comments welcome.

=DEPRECATED=
 
 
For a time, I used to push all label data on one page, which has quickly proved unmanageable. Below are the remains of this attempt, waiting to be properly migrated in the new one-label/one-page architecture.
 
 
==Quick Find Me==
 
 
This section mention labels names, country of origin, historical period of activity, off-sites links, and mentions bootleg.
