Linda Lee was a very small independent label seemingly set up in 1964 as an outlet for material by Billy Thorpe & the Aztecs and members of the band individually. There seem to have been 7 issues on the original label. Poison Ivy (007) becoming a national no.1 hit, so much so Linda Lee was taken over by Festival and received a new label. Poison Ivy was also released on Festival with the original catalogue no. LL-007 (instead of an FK no.) The label folded after Billy Thorpe (& Aztecs) joined EMI to record for Parlophone in 1965. He stayed there until he formed his own company HAVOC in the early 70ís.
