SEA RECORDS label is a sub-label of Mountain Records, a label started in Cape Town, South Africa in the early 1980s.

The first release was Robbie Jansen's VASTRAP ISLAND. Here a pic of the sleeve of the album, though as CD. The album was originally issued on Vinyl LP and Music Cassette.

The second release on Sea Records was the re-issue of Introducing Tony Schilder. Schilder was a bandleader who admired the work of Jonathan Butler who was engaged to produce the debut album by Schilder, though the musicians came from different generations. The album was issued on Vinyl LP. Tracks were taken from the original master plus new material for this CD only release pictured below.

Sea Records was envisaged as a Jazz label and several Hamburg based Jazz musicians licensed their productions to the label in the late 1980s and early 90s.

More recently Sea Records issued the Dhafer Youssef album - Digital Prophecy in conjunction with Enja/Jassics Music, South Africa.
