Tiger Lily Records was a record label that was run by Roulette Records founder Morris Levy. Purportedly it was a tax scam created by Levey and was never intended to make a profit. Tiger Lily's modus operandi was to acquire demo tapes from artists and then release them without the artists consent and sometimes without even the artist's knowledge. The most prominent artist to have a record released by Tiger Lily was Richard Pryor whose album L.A. Jail was released by Tiger Lily in 1976.
The Tiger Lily Records name is now held by a reputable Canadian company. They have been in operation since approximately 1998. Their brand encompasses Tiger Lily Records, Tiger Lily Records Canada and Tiger Lily Music. This collective record label produces music by several independent musicians and bands and distributes their music internationally.
