 MILESAGO - Industry - Record Labels - Festival Records   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Throughout the period covered by MILESAGO, Festival Records was the top local company in the Australian recording industry, and much of the credit for the establishment of the current industry belongs to the artists, producers, engineers and other staff who recorded and worked for Festival in the '50s, '60s and '70s.
The Beat Boom of the mid-60s was the golden era for Festival, although many of the classic recordings of the period were made by the independent labels it distributed.
Robert Iredale was their first, from the 50s and mid- '60s and he recorded many eary classics with local acts like O'Keefe and a young british-born vocal trio called The Bee Gees.

The Bee Gees on the other hand were in the recording studio for not only their own sessions, but as backing singers for quite a variety of other Festival artists, on disks still being discovered nearly forty years later.
It was also their first record release outside Australia: in 1996, a fan reported a copy released in 1963 or 1964 on the Olga label in Scandinavia.
It was the practice at Festival to use featured artists and bands as uncredited help on other records, so the Bee Gees turn up as backing singers on records like this where their contribution is barely audible.
