EMI

Profilo:
EMI was the label of UK company EMI Records Ltd., also known as EMI Records.
After a hiatus, EMI was relaunched as a label by Universal Music Group in 2020.
Label Code: LC 0542 / LC 00542.
EMI did not exist as a label until 1 January 1973 (the exception being a few Indian releases around 1969 and 60s Australian test-pressings related to EMI Studios Sydney). It should not be added as a label to any release before that date, aside from those Indian releases. Furthermore it should not be added as a label on any release with a primary branded label such as His Master's Voice, Columbia, Pathé, Parlophone, Capitol Records, etc., as the boxed EMI logo that appears with the primary label simply implies that the label formed part of the EMI Group (please do not confuse with EMI Group Plc), not that EMI was a label. In these cases, it is permitted to add EMI as a Record Company (discussion / more discussion) as it was the corporate logo of the parent companies Electric & Musical Industries Ltd. / EMI Ltd. (EMI) and was not intended as a label.

From 1996 until September 2012 the ultimate parent company / owner of all the EMI labels and companies was EMI Group Ltd. (EMI Group Plc.)

After that date Universal Music Group now owns large parts of the former EMI Group, with the former EMI Records Ltd. (which includes most EMI UK & Europe operations) being renamed as Parlophone Records Ltd. and being sold off to the Warner Music Group.

EMI was a major label and had a lot of sub and sister labels which also carry the EMI logo and manage its huge amount of releases all over the world.

The EMI country codes: In 1969 a new international system was introduced for EMI catalogue numbers. A five-digit prefix was added to the five-digit record number, separated by a hyphen. The first number and letter are a code for the country the record was made in or for. This usually corresponds with the country field on Discogs. Please enter this catalogue number against whichever label is branded on the release.

Some more notes about the EMI catalog numbering in Europe during the years 1969-1983 (it is what I know, any help is welcome).

"12A 345-67890"

Yes, 12A is a country code, but not the only country component. 12A refers to the country of the target market. So 1C is for the German market, 2C for the Franch market, 3C for the Italian market, and so on.

345 is a reference to the format of the release. Most likely information for the production plant. What material/density to use, what size/shape as well as information of how to transfer the recorded material into the medium (vinyl cutting, recording to tape). 000 denotes a promo or jukebox record not for sale, 006 and 008 a 7" single (008 might be a different compound; styrene vs. regular vinyl?), 016 a 7" EP, 052 a 12" maxi single. Albums are usually in the 022-070 range, double albums tend to have a first digit 1 and cassettes a first digit 2. When the CD was introduced in 1983, this scheme became insufficient.

67890 is what I call the ordinal number. This one can have a regional component as well. If so, it refers to the country where the song material was originally recorded. Note that this is not necessarily the country the artist is coming from; it's merely an indication of the country of the recording studio.
I discovered the following ranges:

04001-07899 = mostly UK-based releases for the continental European market. Included are releases on EMI's own imprint, plus labels like Apple, Parlophone, (EMI-)Columbia and Harvest.

Italian division of EMI released on mid 80 the budget "Talent" series.
On this series were reissued a selection of successfull albums published by italian EMI and related companies: Pink Floyd, Kraftwerk, Sex Pistols and lots of others.
There wasn't any logo on sleeves, inner sleeves or labels to identify the album released on the series.
Just only the shrink-wrap had the "Talent" logo (all albums were released sealed).
Anyway, most album have a new, different catalogue number from the original release and/or from previous reissues.
