The Australian PYE label was one of the main players during the early 60ís. It was the off-shoot of the English label but it also recorded some local items. They also distributed Mercury, Wing & Reprise.  The records were pressed by Astor and distributed independently. PYE even had their own record shop in Melbourne for a short time, also an outlet for PYE electrical appliances.
In 1963 the Australian PYE label was swallowed up into the Astor company and all subsequent releases were on the Astor label (AP series).
