The Rocket Record Company

Profile:
Labelcode: LC 3053 / LC 03053

Label from England founded by Elton John, Bernie Taupin, Gus Dudgeon and Steve Brown in 1972; pressed and distributed in the US by MCA Records from 1974 to 1978 (and until the early 1980s, RCA) and by Island Records, Phonogram and Mercury in Britain.

Besides John, Rocket released material by Kiki Dee, Neil Sedaka and, in America only between 1974 and 1978, Cliff Richard (his biggest American hit at the time, "Devil Woman", was on Rocket; in 1978, he was assigned to EMI America in North America).

Elton John's UK releases from 1976 onwards, were on Rocket (he ultimately became the label's only artist). It was revived in the US for the Made In England album and Island Records' mid-1990s expanded and remastered CD re-releases of his pre-1980 catalog. It ran out of business after Universal Music Group dissolved the Island Def Jam Music Group in 1999, but the Rocket logo was still appearing on new Elton John material up to 2004.

The logo also appeared on the David A. Stewart/Kara DioGuardi Seventies rock hoax/side project Platinum Weird in 2005.
