Soft Estate Records is a small independent label started in Louisville, KY — now based in Berkeley, CA — focused on re-issuing privately pressed or otherwise under-appreciated albums from the past. Re-issuing these albums is our way of preserving and archiving fragments of music history that until now seemed destined to fade away, unnoticed.

We work to ensure that the re-issue stays true to the artist’s original intentions — This means having the audio professionally re-mastered, and the album art meticulously restored. In addition, we provide supplemental material such as historical liner notes and lyrics inside of an old-style gatefold jacket.

And we are committed to making sure that the artists whose music we release are properly compensated for their work.

If you know of any albums deserving of re-issue, feel free to contact us.
