Chrysalis

Chrysalis

Profil:
Please note, many Chrysalis issues also carried an EMI logo. This is not a label and EMI should not be added as a label, it instead indicates that Chrysalis was part of the EMI Group.

The roots of Chrysalis stretch back to a tiny flat in West London in 1967, when former university social secretaries, Chris Wright, then 22, and Terry Ellis, 23, linked their flair for managing and booking bands to form the Ellis Wright Agency.

After a couple of experiences trying to release their bands records via other companies, Wright and Ellis began thinking in terms of their own label. In 1968, they signed a licensing deal with Island Records with the proviso that, should Wright and Ellis' acts log an agreed number of hits, then the pair would be awarded a label in their own right. The appropriate tally was logged within a year, and a new independent record company –Chrysalis, an amalgam of Wright's first name and Ellis' last name– was born.

After buying out Terry Ellis in 1985, Chris Wright sold the Chrysalis Records label to EMI in 1991. EMI was bought out by Universal Music Group in 2012; in 2013, they sold the Parlophone Label Group, which includes Chrysalis, to Warner Music Group. In May 2016 the label was sold to a consortium, Blue Raincoat Music, which included co-founder Chris Wright as Non-Executive Chairman; Blue Raincoat plans to relaunch Chrysalis with both catalog artists and new signings.

I am a little biased since I consult with them but I think the effort & care that Chrysalis/Blue Raincoat are taking with their heritage releases is simply superb

Artwork is painstakingly recreated/restored using source materials where possible, the very best available original masters are selected, the engagement with their artists & subject matter experts, the mastering (typically sublime and sympathetic by Alchemy), audio restoration, pressing (zero tolerance for defects) and quality printing/packaging construction.

A few years after reconstituting the business they are now trusted by the artists they serve and remember that that the relationship is two-way with neither being subservient to the other.

Usually record companies are stereotypically classed as money-grabbing bastards and, whilst Chrysalis has a need to be a robust business, that doesn't stop them from going the extra mile and never wanting to fleece the fans or the artists.

Chrysalis had lots of wonderful music on its label during the time it was initially active. They had wonderful artists and bands, such as Blondie, Debbie Harry solo, UFO, Pat Benatar, Billy Idol, Icehouse, Go West, Crazy House, Paul Carrack, Leo Sayer (UK), Jethro Tull, David Dundas, Slaughter, Jellybean Benitez, Toni Basil, John Waite (formerly lead singer of The Baby's, but he did release one solo album on the label called Ignition), Spandau Ballet, Sinead O'Connor, Ian Hunter, Huey Lewis and the News, Toto Coelo, Ten Years After and many others too numerous to mention. They've also gone through several label changes, which in itself, is not unusual, but their third label logo, which was a colorful butterfly in the middle of the label, is the label design I call "the psychedelic butterfly", which I hope someone else hasn't thought of yet, as I only call it that due to the colors that were used and mingled together, as to me, it looks very psychedelic. I have heard that the label has been recently reactivated. If it has and if it will be an active label again, let's hope that they can sign some talented artists who will make wonderful music and continue to do so in the many years ahead.
