After the takeover, Reprise's new owner, Mo Ostin, would lead the label away from the swing roster that Sinatra had built and into the pop direction for which it became famous (starting with securing rights to Music/TheKinks). The roster throughout the late 1960s and the 1970s included Music/JimiHendrix, Music/CaptainBeefheart, Music/TomLehrer, Music/NeilYoung (who's stayed with the label to this day, except during a brief, [[http://ultimateclassicrock.com/neil-young-geffen-records-infamous-rock-lawsuits/ ill-fated switch to]] Creator/GeffenRecords), the 1970's recordings by Music/FrankZappa, Music/FleetwoodMac, Music/JethroTull and the late 1960s to mid 1970s recordings by Music/TheBeachBoys.

Fleetwood Mac's internal conflict and dwindling sales led to them being moved up to the parent label, where they would record the massively popular and critically acclaimed ''Rumours''; this didn't bode well for Reprise's future. Reprise had been struggling to maintain good sales after coming down from the success they'd had in the early 1970s, and from the mid-1970s to the 1980s, all of its artists (except for Frank Sinatra and Neil Young) had been moved up to Warner. From the label's revival in the late 1980s onward, Ostin has worked to elevate Reprise into the incarnation it's recognized as being today. Most of the label's (many) former artists still distribute their work from that era through the label. Reprise currently holds the place of a secondary parent to Warner, hosting many small labels that Warner can't handle.

Reprise (pronounced rih-PREEZ) is a record label owned by the Warner Music Group and currently its largest sub-label. The label was founded by Music/FrankSinatra in 1960 and after struggling through its early years, was bought by Creator/WarnerBrosRecords three years later (they called it a "rescue takeover").

Finally, if you've ever had a Warner-licensed song taken down from Website/{{Youtube}}, it probably belonged to Reprise they're very serious about that. Despite this, unlike Warner, Reprise has a good relationship with videogames: they have a track pack on ''VideoGame/GuitarHero III'' and were completely supportive of ''Green Day: VideoGame/RockBand''.
