Hep Records

Hep Records is one of my favorite labels for getting pre 1945 swing music. The sound quality is excelent and their choice of artist to feature is just as good. UNfortunately I just found out from a local store that they no longer have a US distributor. It appears that their distributor went under in 2001 and caused a lot of financial problems for the lables they represented, Hep being one of them. It does appear that you can still order through their website, but I've emailed them and just get bounced back. Amazon.com and BN.com still have their products listed, but with on an indefinite back order.
