68: Asylum Records

Long before he was one of the world’s most powerful media moguls, David Geffen was just a kid in LA who ran a music label that put artists first. The label was Asylum Records. Launched in 1971, Asylum was for a few golden years the home of fantastic, legendary artists like Judee Sill, Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, Tom Waits and even (briefly) Bob Dylan. The Eagles also were on Asylum.
