Profile:
Now defunct Canadian label. Founded in 1963 by Rodeo Records Ltd., it originally issued Australian folk, country and pop music. In 1965 it began to evolve into a modern classical music label, and was acquired by BMI Canada Ltd. in 1973, who sold it to Waterloo Music Co. Ltd in 1977.

In its final years the New Music Series featured Canadian composers, including Harry Somers' The Fool, R. Murray Schafer's Loving and Threnody, and electroacoustic music by Jean Piché, Barry Truax, as performed by the Orchestre Symphonique de Montreal, the Orford String Quartet, Toronto Mendelssohn Choir, the York Winds, Antonin Kubálek, piano duo Leslie Kinton and James Anagnoson, Robert Bauer, Davis Joachim, William Kuinka, Christopher Weait, and David Zafer. Its final production, Piché's Heliograms, was released in 1982. Its catalogue was sold to the Canadian Music Centre in 1986.

Some of those records have two pressings, but all second press actually have the 1st press vinyl and a second press sleeve with more generic artwork. For example, R. Murray Schafer's Threnody LP was first issued in 1971 but later re-issued in 1979 with new sleeve showcasing new artwork. Same goes for both Electronic Music compilations. The first pressings usually carry much finer looking artwork than the generic reissues.
