Impact Records

1966 - 1978


Impact Records was an Independent New Zealand label operating between 1966 and 1980. Owned by promoter Benny Levin and Russell Clark. Impact Records was originally distributed by HMV. In 1968 Pye (NZ) Ltd took over distribution. By 1976 WEA were distributing Impact.

The catalogue numbers started at IR.1001 and went through to IR.1057, at which point there appears to be a gap in the numbers with a new range starting at IR.1070 through to IR.1088, and then a final three starting at IR.2000.
