Set up primarily to be the home of more progressive releases within the Pye sphere it was launched in September 1969 to compete with Deram (Decca), Harvest (EMI) and Vertigo (Philips), but achieved most commercial successs with the jugband Mungo Jerry. Other notable acts included Atomic Rooster, Stray, Prelude, Paul Brett, Donovan & David McWilliams. Having effectively failed to compete, Dawn ceased with the last original release in February 1976.
