This site is dedicated to the legacy of Compendium Records – Norway`s first progressive record store and label. Compendium Records was located in Bernt Ankers Gate in Oslo, Norway, between the years 1974-1977. Besides pushing quality experimental and progressive music and books, they also released 10 albums on their in-house record label. This site offers info on all aspects of the Compendium Records legacy and on the upcoming Compendium Records anthology being released on Plastic Strip Press, 25th of October 2010 (Digipack CD/2 LP Gatefold)
