Label Code: LC 0299

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 a record label founded in Germany in 1896 by Carl Lindström, as Parlophon (the ‘e’ was originally added for UK releases). The L in the logo represents his name. In 1923 an English branch was set up and this was taken over by The Columbia Graphophone Company in 1927, thus becoming a constituent part of EMI when that company merged with The Gramophone Company 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, it was the only pop label to retain its identity when EMI merged all its non-US labels in 1973.

In September 2012 following the acquisition of EMI Group's US and Asian interests by Universal Music Group, Parlophone and the former EMI Records Ltd. were merged as the Parlophone Label Group 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 Limited, 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.)
