It has also been hugely successful and each year generates millions of dollars in net income.

From Robert Johnson to Frank Sinatra, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Hall and Oates, Miles Davis, John Denver, Johnny Cash , Earth Wind & Fire, Harry Nilsson, Prez Prado, Bessie Smith, Louis Armstrong, AC / DC, Journey, Kenny G, Willie Nelson, Jefferson Airplane and The Clash, Legacy is home to all the best in classic and rare pop, hip -hop, rock, jazz, blues, folk, rhythm and blues, gospel, country, Broadway musicals, movie soundtracks, ethnic, world music, comedy and more.

The Music Each and every gem you’ll find proudly bearing the Legacy name has been mined from the massive archive of recordings housed in the Columbia, RCA, Epic, Arista, Jive and associated labels’ vaults, including Philadelphia International, OKeh, ARC, Vocalion, and Brunswick, as well as such acquired imprints Ode, Budda and more.

We at Legacy take great pride in every title we release. Each selection, from a reissue of a classic album to an extensive career retrospective, is given the high quality treatment worthy of the Legacy name.
