Xanadu was established in 1975 by former Prestige exec Don Schlitten both as a vehicle to continue publishing the artists he had spent a career with at various labels and to re-issue impossibly rare recordings going back to the birth of BeBop. Like Muse, Mainstream, Flying Dutchman and the other big players of the 70's, Xanadu actually benefited to some degree by the alleged 'Death of Jazz' in that they no longer bothered to angle for commercial success but instead catered to the real but reduced market with high quality jazz with a primary focus on BeBop.
