Nicole & Eddie Barclay founded the Blue Star Record in Paris in February 1945. The firm changed its name in 1948 for Productions Phonographiques Françaises (PPF). In January 1953, PPF became Compagnie Phonographique Française (also known as C.P.F. Barclay) and eventually better known as Barclay.
Barclay released mainly French chanson and jazz music, also distributing major US labels in France (Atlantic/Jubilee, Prestige, Mercury, Verve Records, Buddah Records,...).
In 1978, Eddie Barclay sold 80% of his company to the PolyGram group. Five years later, PolyGram acquired the last 20% and Eddie Barclay left the company to set up a new one: Eddie Barclay
