Template:COI Anthology Recordings was born in 2004 from Keith Abrahamsson's desire to digitize and actualize rare albums beyond their physical - and oft impossible to find - format. Earning praise from press (NPR, Wired, CNN) and hardcore seekers alike, Anthology procured hundreds of records under the mantra ″nothing too obscure,″ tirelessly proselytizing until Abrahamsson's archival efforts went on hiatus in 2010.

Anthology Recordings auspiciously relaunched in 2014 as Mexican Summer's reissue imprint, serving vinyl and formats unforeseen. Its ambition is to explore the scope of our musical heritage without limitation to genre or form. Tasked with this mission, Anthology Recordings has worked to elevate the reissue practice through responsibly sourced material, compelling design, and high-quality packaging.

In 2016, Anthology Recordings founded the imprint Anthology Editions to fashion cultural narratives as books, music collections, online experiences, and exhibitions.
