Full Moon Records Discography
By Mike Callahan, David Edwards, and Patrice Eyries
Last update: September 28, 2000

Full Moon Records was Irving Azoff's label. In the early 1970s, Azoff was running a music booking agency in Champaign, Illinois, near his alma mater, the University of Illinois. He had gotten regional band REO Speedwagon a contract with media giant Columbia, and felt he was ready for the big time. Looking for a potential star that could help him get there, he heard about Peoria-born Dan Fogelberg, a student at U of I who was singing at coffee houses locally. At a noisy and boisterous frat party at one of the local bars, Azoff found someone who knew Fogelberg, and Azoff sent for him to hear him play. As Fogelberg took the stage alone, the bottles kept breaking against the wall, the fights continued, but Azoff heard the star quality through the din and told him that they both were ready for the big time.

Azoff moved to Los Angeles, right across the street from David Geffen, who was then setting up shop at Asylum Records. Azoff gave Fogelberg traveling money to join him there, and shopped his demo tapes around town, finally settling on Columbia for the contract.

Full Moon was actually Azoff's production company, and starting with Souvenirs, Fogelberg's second album, the Full Moon logo appeared on Fogelberg's albums as the Epic/Full Moon label. The original pressings of Souvenirs were on the orange Epic label with a small Full Moon logo, but Azoff quickly had a complete Full Moon/Epic label designed featuring an evergreen tree in the foreground backed by a huge photo of the full moon which took up the entire label. The label most often appeared with a blue background and black and white print, but was also issued in orange, peach, aqua, or grey colors instead of blue. Although the evergreen tree logo remained the Full Moon logo, the Full Moon label was not used for Full Moon issues on other labels.

Azoff eventually became manager of the Eagles and Journey under his Front Line management company, and became noted as producer of several hit movies, including Fast Times at Ridgemont High and Urban Cowboy. In 1983, he became Chairman of the MCA Music Entertainment Group, but kept his role as head of Full Moon and Front Line. In 1990, he teamed with Time Warner to form Azoff Entertainment Company. The Full Moon logo was last seen on Warner/Reprise records about 1990, when the Azoff Entertainment Company was formed. Fogelberg's records on Full Moon/Epic continued until the early 1990s.
