WEA Music Of Canada, Ltd.

WEA Music Of Canada, Ltd.

Profile:
In June 1972 Kinney Music Of Canada, Ltd. was renamed to WEA Music of Canada, Ltd. (a.k.a. WEA Musique Du Canada Ltée. in French) as the new Canadian branch of the WEA [Warner, Elektra, Atlantic] company - a division of Warner Communications. The name remained till 1989, when in 1990, became Warner Music Canada Ltd - a subsidiary of the US-based Warner Music International.

Attention! This is a company - Not a label. Only list its function in a company field!

If both WEA Music of Canada, Ltd. and WEA Musique Du Canada Ltée. are mentioned on a release, please credit both in LCCN and state in release notes where to find which version.

May 1973 the company began using price codes on the spines of LPs and at the end of the graphic on cassette releases. The price code was a four-digit string indicating retail price (e.g., $7.98 retail price = 0798 price code).

June 1974 the company began employing the 1974-designed Saul Bass 'W' logo on releases, later to become the umbrella brand identity for the Warner Music Group

WEA used a system of letter codes on record labels and cassette shells to indicate the producing plant:
C or CO = CBS Records Canada Ltd.
CI or CR = Cinram
GR = Golden Record Manufacturing Ltd.
I = Impact Records Mfg. Co. Of Canada
Q = Quality Records Limited
R = RCA Records Pressing Plant, Smiths Falls, Ontario
