NEMS

Profile:
Record label existing from 1968 to 1983.

NEMS Enterprises was Brian Epstein's management company, the initials deriving from the Epstein family's 'North End Music Stores' in Liverpool. Its record label was a relatively late development, and it came after Epstein's death in 1967: the first mention of it was in 'Record Retailer' of the 31st of January 1968. According to the article the new label was to be called 'Oval' and it was to be launched later that year - manufacture and distribution were being discussed.

Sometimes listed as NEMS Records & Tapes.
For publishing and copyrights, Nems Records Ltd. is often used.
