Swansong Records


Swansong Records was launched by Led Zeppelin in May 1974 when their contract with Atlantic was about to expire. It stopped releasing from October 1983 and remains now only for the occasional re-issue of back-catalogue material.

During its nine-year history the label released work by Led Zeppelin, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant as solo artists, Bad Company, The Pretty Things, Dave Edmunds, Mirabai, Maggie Bell, Midnight Flyer, Detective and Sad Cafe.

The Swansong logo is based on “Evening” (aka ‘The fall of day’) painted in 1869 by William Rimmer and features the Greek god, Apollo.
