Major Minor

Major Minor

Profile:
Major Minor was founded by pirate radio station Radio Caroline's founder Ronan O'Rahilly in 1966 and its then manager and record producer, Philip Solomon.
The label was distributed by Decca Records, with an eclectic roster of artists from Johnny Nash to Rory Gallagher, and from bubblegum bands like Crazy Elephant to soul artists such as Cissy Houston and The Isley Brothers.
Major Minor had its first UK #1 single with "Mony Mony" by Tommy James and the Shondells in 1968. Astute licensing deals of obscure or controversial recordings which 'captured the moment' also helped the Major Minor label to gain strong sales, such as the single "Je T'Aime...Moi Non Plus" which reached the UK #1 spot in 1969.
Sister label of Toast (3)

In 2011, the label was resurrected by Morrissey in order to reissue his 1990 album "Bona Drag".
