You're showing your age, Paul. In rock music culture Mushroom Records is better known not so much for their corporate symbol, but for introducing to the world two sisters in a local band from Vancouver with an album titled "Dreamboat Annie." The rest is history.

Oh, by the way, KDP: apparently a different company. The Ozzie one is still around as Mushroom Group.
