For the label use Mercury.

Mercury Record Corporation was founded in Chicago, Illinois in 1945 by Irving Green, Berle Adams and Arthur Talmadge. Early in the label's history, Mercury opened two pressing plants, one in Chicago and the other in St. Louis, Missouri. With the use of automatic presses and providing 24-hour turnaround, they went into direct competition with the major recording labels such as Columbia, Decca, and RCA Victor.
The company released an enormous number of recordings under the Mercury label as well as its subsidiaries: Blue Rock, Cumberland, EmArcy, Fontana, Limelight, Philips, Smash and Wing. In 1969, Mercury changed its corporate name to Mercury Record Productions Inc. while its former parent Conelco became North American Philips Corp (N.A.P.C.) after Philips brought control of the company. In 1972, Philips along with German Electronics giant Siemens merged their record operations with Deutsche Grammophon to become PolyGram. That same year PolyGram brought Mercury from N.A.P.C.. corporate name was changed to Phonogram Inc.
Often credited as:
(C) Year Mercury Records, a Universal Music Company (Outside USA)
or
(C) Year Mercury Records. Manufactured and Marketed by Mercury Records, A PolyGram Company (USA 1996 to 1998). (In the USA, Mercury Records was replaced by Island Def Jam Music Group).
