The History of the Independent Record Labels
Phonothèque québécoise
Montréal , Quebec

Enter

record industry, in 1899. Up
until 1960, the Quebec
repertoire was downplayed by
the multinationals, who
preferred to impose
adaptations of hits from the
United States or France.
   After the "Révolution
tranquille", Quebec's
independent record labels

produce 80% of the records in
the province, leaving 20% to
the multinationals.
   As a complement to the
exhibition, the Phonothèque
(www.phonotheque.org) has
made available a chronology
and all of the interview
excerpts.
