Rev-Ola Records is a British independent record label formed in 1988 that specializes in reissues, as well as select new releases. The label is headed by Joe Foster, a former child actor and musician/producer. He, along with Alan McGee and Dick Green, formed Creation Records, as well as the band Biff Bang Pow!.
The inspiration for Rev-Ola came from the Creation Records staff's love of finding or compiling old, rare, and bizarre records.
The label was originally a subsidiary of the Creation Records publishing arm, Creation Songs, in which guise it also issued spoken word recordings by William Shatner and Ivor Cutler, as well as first-time reissues by favoured artists, such as Fred Neil and Yma Sumac.
Other executives at Rev-Ola include art director and songwriter Andy Morten, and mastering engineer Norman Blake (of Teenage Fanclub). Rev-Ola is now a subsidiary of the Glasgow-based PoppyDisc label, founded by Foster with Norman Blake, Andy Morten, and Paul Cardow.
