The Amazing Kornyfone Record Label

The Amazing Kornyfone Record Label

Profile:
The Amazing Kornyfone Record Label (TAKRL) was one of the first bootlegging record labels in America. Kornyfone was based in Southern California in the 1970s. Releases were from 1973-78.

For releases from 2011 onwards, use The Amazing Kornyfone Record Label (2).

The label released albums from such artists as The Beatles, David Bowie, Bob Dylan, The Grateful Dead, Led Zeppelin, Elton John, Joni Mitchell, Pink Floyd, Genesis, and others. Kornyfone was noted for their packaging, with interesting artwork and informative covers.
According to Clinton Heylin (in "Bootleg: The Secret History of the Other Recording Industry"):
"Though Dub's output [at TMQ] in the five years separating Great White Wonder from Tales from The Who had outstripped any of his competitors, TMQ's catalogue pales alongside what Ken and co. unleashed between 1974 and the end of 1976. A hundred-plus titles from the flagship label, The Amazing Kornyphone Record Label,[2] were supplemented by represses of Smokin' Pig titles, thirty-two titles on TKRWM (The Kornyphone Records for the Working Man), a dozen double-albums on Singer's Original Double Disk (SODD) and sixteen releases on Highway High Fi Collector's Edition Records (HHCER) (which regularly appeared with TAKRL or Smokin' Pig labels - just to add to the confusion)."

indeed a very strange new rule...these are records, long out of print and only available through collectors who want to sell their recs.
For new releases ill understand this but for this collectors pieces......
