Parlophone

Profile:
Multinational label.
Label Code: LC 0299 / LC 00299
Please note, many Parlophone issues also carry an EMI logo. This is not a label and EMI should not be added as a label, it instead indicates that Parlophone was part of the EMI Group.

Parlophone is an anglicization of the German Parlophon label, registered as a trademark in 1902 by Max Straus and Heinrich Zuntz of Salon Kinematograph Co. GmbH, later merged into Carl Lindström A.-G.. The first Parlophon records are pressed in 1910.

By 1923, Parlophone proper appears in London administered by English Lindström branch known as The Parlophone Co. Ltd., Parlophon records were pressed in London and sold locally. By 1926 extended operations extended to press for export in Australia (#cat A) until the australian factory Parlophone Co. Ltd. was created somewhere the next year. These companies were subsequently taken over by Columbia Graphophone Company Ltd. in 1927, following its acquisition of Carl Lindström A.-G. in 1926, thus becoming a constituent part of Electric & Musical Industries Ltd. (EMI) when that company merged with The Gramophone Co. Ltd. in 1931.

The label largely operated as a Jazz and Novelty label until manager, George Martin, signed the The Beatles in 1962. As a result of its subsequent success and profile, the label was earmarked for phasing out in 1973 in favour of EMI (the label), however the parlophone imprint continued to be used by registered trademark owner EMI Records Ltd. and affiliated companies.

In September 2012 following the acquisition of EMI Group Ltd.'s US and Asian interests by Universal Music Group, Parlophone and the former EMI Records Ltd. were merged as the Parlophone Label Group (PLG Holdco Ltd.) and spun off to be sold.

They were sold to Warner Music Group in March 2013.
The Parlophone label is now owned by Parlophone Records Ltd., the re-named EMI Records Ltd., itself a subsidiary of Warner Music International.

The Beatles were not part of the Parlophone Label Group and their catalogue was acquired by Universal.

This label contains releases on multinational markets. Do NOT create imprints for different countries. Cover that information on new releases with the country field and with notes about the release (releasing company, ℗&© note, mechanical rights etc.).

Be careful... Parlophone has about as many dud releases (poor quality pressings or receiving 2 Side A/B LPs and no Side C/D) as stellar ones. Check the release's Discogs reviews first to help identify the problem children before purchasing... Parlophone's customer service is non-existant (as messages on their Facebook and Twitter can attest). At the very least, limit your Parlophone purchases to merchants with return policies and local retail stores. (Otherwise, you may have to drive 30+ miles to get your issue addressed.)
