TESTAMENT is an artist-based label, not restricted to any period of recording history;  its releases are selected from the archives of some of the largest record companies and radio stations in the world.

With the permission and cooperation of these companies and stations TESTAMENT releases previously unpublished and deleted recordings from their archives, using the original master tapes and 78rpm metal parts for CD remastering.

TESTAMENT also has access to their extensive photographic archives and comprehensive research facilities.

TESTAMENT is thus in a unique position, one that is enjoyed by no other independent record company specialising in the reissue of archive recordings.
