Shelter Records label was established in the U.S.A. in the late 1960s by Leon Russell and some friends from Oklahoma.
The label was more than a vehicle for Leon Russell records, although a large percentage of the output involved either Russell or Cordell in some way. Oklahoma legend J.J. Cale got his start with the label, as did Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Phoebe Snow, and the Dwight Twilley Band. 
Australian issues were handeled by Tempo and later, Festival.
