Object statement
Music catalogue, Larrikin Records, paper, published by Larrikin Records, used by Festival Records, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, 1982-1988
This booklet has significance as a listing of audio recordings available from Larrikin Records in the 1980s. Started by Warren Fahey in 1974, Larrikin was an independent label specialising in local music - folk, Indigenous, bush music, country, blues, jazz and Australiana. Larrikin's extensive catalogue included successful artists like Eric Bogle and Redgum, as well rights to distribute many international specialist labels. In 1995, eager to increase its domestic market share, Festival Records acquired Larrikin Entertainment. Fahey became part of the management team at Festival.

As an Australian record company, Festival Records was for over 50 years a significant force in the music recording industry. It financed, recorded, manufactured, promoted, marketed, distributed and published a huge range of local and overseas music, from classical to popular, under an equally vast number of labels. Although a major record company, it was independent of the five multinational companies that dominated the industry worldwide.

Festival Records manufactured vinyl discs in Sydney for 40 years. At the height of production in the 1980s Festival's factory was buzzing with 26 record presses pumping out 25,000 records per day. In addition there was a cassette duplicating plant, an art department, a printing department for album covers, plus a huge warehouse for packing and distribution.

Festival Records provided a home to a vast array of musical styles and many independent labels, not readily identified with the Festival brand. For over fifty years its existence as a major independent record company, competing with the multinationals, helped to create a healthy environment for Australian music.
Published by Larrikin Records Pty Ltd, 282 Oxford St Paddington. Printer unknown.
This catalogue came to Festival Records when the company purcahsed Larrikin Records in 1995. It remained in Festival Records' collection until donated to the Museum. It was displayed in the Museum's exhibition 'Spinning Around: 50 Years of Festival Records', from 2001 to 2003.
