 Discontinued Records was owned by Peter Atkins. He had various label's hits re-issued. Records were pressed in New Zealand and Australia  and distributed in Australia exclusively by Discontinued Records (as stated on EP & LP sleeves) through his record shops in Hurstville, Sydney and in Elizabeth Street, Melbourne.
 Most re-issues were on the original label but 1980's design.
All EPs (there were quite a few) were all compilations of 4 hits either by Various or Specific artists with chart info on the back with unique sleeve designs, not re-issues of existing EPs.
The LPs were straight re-issues of the original album complete with a reproduction of the original sleeves, but with the current label design, or in some cases on Viking and a notation of Discontinued Records involvement.
All records were issued in limited quantities. When Discontined closed, excess stocks sold off to various “collector” record shops. Once they were gone they were gone.
