Crypt Records The legendary record label, home of Back From the Grave, the Oblivians, Gories, etc. etc..
Norton Records Another excellent re-ish label, with the occasional new artist thrown in who is also worth your attention. Also famous as the label that brought Hasil Adkins to the world's attention.
Ace Records An excellent re-issue label of early American roots music. I covet the entire catalog.
Bear Family Records A German label doing museum-quality reissues of classic American music that Americans are too ignorant to know about. Or that American record companies are too greedy and short-sighted to care about. Why do Americans let another country do the best job of documenting their own uniquely American culture? Anyway, support Bear Family with your hearts, minds, and dollars.
