Flip Records was a record label that flourished in the 1950s, releasing rhythm and blues and doo-wop music by such artists as Richard Berry, the Six Teens, Donald Wood, the Elgins, and many others. Max and Lilian Feirtag operated the label in Los Angeles, California, and published music under the Limax Music trademark.

The biggest success was Richard Berry's original recording of his song "Louie, Louie," which came out in 1957.

In 2000, Ace Records of England purchased the assets of the original Flip Records catalog, and has been releasing this vintage music for the CD market.
