This awesome vintage rock tee features a sweet iron on graphic for Swan Song Records which was the label launched by English rock band Led Zeppelin in 1974. The label was overseen by the band's manager Peter Grant. It served as a means to help promote their own music and also sign artists who had difficulty signing with other major labels.
Swan Song Records was created after Led Zeppelin's five year contract with Atlantic Records expired. Some of the artists included on the label were Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, Bad Company, Dave Edmunds, Maggie Bell, and Detective. The label ceased active operations in 1983 and began only reissuing previously released material.
The Swan Song logo, which is depicted on this shirt, was created by designers Hipgnosis. The image is based on the 1869 painting by William Rimmer titled "The Fall oof the Day" the painting is intended to depict the Greek god Apollo. The logo appeared on all Swan Song releases, but most people will recognize it from the Led Zeppelin album Physical Graffiti.
