The Saga Of Strata Records

Detroit's short-lived but ambitious jazz label finally gets its due.

Friday, December 14, 2012

During its brief run in the late 1960s and '70s, Detroit's Strata Records put out just six albums, but the owners of the jazz and funk label recorded many more that went unreleased. Now, one New York record collector and indie-label operator is releasing some of those recordings, some 40 years later.

Amir Abdullah of 180 Proof Records tells us Strata's story, which includes a role played by John Lennon and Yoko Ono and a better-known spinoff, New York's Strata-East Records.


Amir Abdullah,
