Dandelion Records was started in 1969 by the British DJ John Peel as a way to get the music he liked onto record. Peel was responsible for "artistic direction" and the commercial side was handled by Clive Selwood of Elektra Records and his wife Shurely.
Dandelion Records were distributed by, successively, CBS Records, Warner Bros. Records and Polydor. The label ran until 1973 when it started to try and place its artists with other labels as its distribution via Polydor had ceased. Several releases attracted a cult audience but never quite crossed into the mainstream.
The only record ever to make the UK Singles Chart was "(And the) Pictures in the Sky" by Medicine Head, which reached #22 in 1971 (DAN 7003).
