Minos Matsas & Son Co. Ltd.

Minos Matsas & Son Co. Ltd.

Profile:
Established in 1960, Minos was Greece's leading independent record company with a 22% market share until it was acquired by EMI who held a 9% market share to create Minos-EMI in 1991. Minos released the first recordings of "rebetika" ("Greek Blues") and recorded most of Greece's top artists.

Minos was also the local distributor of the German Odeon and Parlophone labels until 1966 when local distribution was taken over by Columbia Gramophone Company Greece Ltd. Other foreign labels that were distributed by Minos at one time or another included RCA, Motown and Ariola.
.
While Minos claims manufacturing credit on foreign product, it never had it's own pressing plant.

Also appears as Μίνως Μάτσας & Υιός Α.Ε..
Occasionally also abbreviated to "M. Matsas & Son Co. Ltd."
