Ode Records was a record label, started by Lou Adler in 1967 after he sold Dunhill Records to ABC Records. It was distributed by CBS Records until 1969. Between 1970 and 1976 the label was distributed by A&M Records, from 1976 onward it was again distributed by CBS Records.

Adler reactivated the label several times including another short run with A&M in 1989 as Ode Sounds. It was disbanded when A&M was sold to PolyGram in late 1989.

Ode is now part of Sony Music Entertainment (now the owner of A&M's one-time distributor RCA Records), but the Cheech & Chong catalogue is controlled by Warner Music Group and the soundtrack to The Rocky Horror Picture Show is still owned by Adler.
