Greek label formed in October 1990 after EMIAL bought Minos (2), a pioneer Greek company with huge back catalogue (company name was "Μίνως Μάτσας & Υιός Α.Ε." - "Minos Matsas & Son"). Apart from Minos, Minos-EMI's major labels at the time included Chrysalis, Capitol, IRS, Liberty, and Blue Note. Minos-EMI also incorporated the Greek branch of EMI Columbia, which manufactured records and cassettes on behalf of several record companies and made exports of Greek, international and Arabic repertoire. Minos-EMI claimed 31% of the Greek market in 1997 (split into 65% domestic and 35% international repertoire), and 27.2% in 1998 (36% share in local repertoire / 14.8% share in international repertoire).

On July 1, 2013, Minos-EMI became affiliated label of Universal Music Group, with Cobalt Music (2) being the new owner of previous Greek division of Universal Music. All the international repertoire that belongs to Universal Music, are being released by Minos-EMI.

Warning: Add Minos-EMI as label ONLY if the Minos-EMI logo is present (or both Minos and EMI logos are present).
When a release features only the Minos logo, use Minos (2); when only the EMI logo is present, use EMI.
