Gold Mountain Records was a record label based in New York.[1] It was distributed by A&M Records between 1983 and 1985. After 1985, the distributor was MCA Records.[2][3]

In 1985, the president of the label was Danny Goldberg.[4] Goldberg founded an anti-censorship group called the Musical Majority to counter the call for rock and roll records with explicit lyrics to have warning labels.[5]

Notable releases include Bruce Cockburn's Stealing Fire, "The Final Frontier" by Keel, and The Textones' Midnight Mission.[6]

Gold Mountain Records changed its name in 1987 to Gold Castle Records.
