RevOla Records was founded in 1988 by myself (Joe Foster) and Alan McGee as a subsidiary of Creation Songs Publishing. RevOla was a vehicle for reissuing out of print music that we loved.
RevOla became an internationally acclaimed outlet for reissues and interesting music from the past. It has afforded us many interesting connections and opportunities with not only older artists, but also with their fans. Through the fans we met, there was a great deal of interplay between RevOla and Creation Records and Creation Songs Publishing.
Creation Records finished in 1999, but I’ve kept the RevOla imprint going with various distributors including Cherry Red Records at one point. Cherry Red will continue to make some back catalog available under non exclusive license until 1st January 2019, here.
The label is currently via my PoppyDisc label exclusively distributed in Europe by Shellshock and in the US by Virtual.
