Decca

Decca

Profile:
Also appears as "Decca Records".
This is the LABEL to use, regardless of whether the COMPANY behind is The Decca Record Company Limited or Decca Records, Inc., or whichever else.

Former stockbroker Edward Lewis formed The Decca Record Company Limited in the United Kingdom on February 28, 1929. It was founded for Brunswick Ltd., which was founded locally by Brunswick-Balke-Collender and the German Polyphon Musik.The company started releasing records under the Decca trademark.

A US branch, Decca Records, Inc., was launched in 1934. The first US Decca label was a Sunburst design (also referred to as three-dimensional) but that design disappeared in 1937. The sunburst design was replaced by a Decca in block lettering (also referred to as two-dimensional) mainly blue and red. This branch was sold off during World War II, but the UK & US companies continued to release each other’s recordings in their respective territories. In the UK, US Decca recordings were released on the Brunswick label from 1934 until 1968, when the MCA Records label was established. Brunswick was also used elsewhere in Europe and other countries. However, some European countries released recordings from the two companies on the same Decca label, sometimes with the extra slogan “American Series”.

In 1935, The Decca Record Company Limited contracted with EMI companies in Australia, New Zealand, India and elsewhere for the release of UK & US Decca recordings in those territories. This deal gave US Decca the rights to release recordings from the Parlophone and Odeon labels in North America.

In 1947, The Decca Record Company established the London Records trademark in the US, Canada, South America, and the Far East, as they couldn't use their own Decca trademark in those territories anymore.

In the early 1960’s, following MCA, Inc’s acquisition of US Decca, the company name appearing on releases became Decca Records, A Division Of MCA, Inc. The company name became MCA Records, Inc. in 1971. MCA Records was then established as an American label in 1973 to replace the Decca, Coral, Kapp Records, UNI Records and Vocalion labels.

At the end of 1968 Decca UK had stopped preparing separate monos and stereos for new recordings and instead relied on compatible mixes. There was a shrinking demand for mono, but still enough to make the issues lucrative. To save the cost of printing two different covers they made a common one with a die-cut hole top right on the back cover and separating the issues with different inner sleeves - blue stereo and red mono. This was used for most labels distributed by UK Decca record group (one exception being RCA).

The 1970s were disastrous for the UK Decca label. Although The Decca Company set up the first of the British "progressive" labels, Deram, in 1966, by the time the punk era set in 1977, Decca had become known primarily as a classical label. Label founder Edward Lewis died in January 1980, and PolyGram acquired the Decca labels within days of his death.

Decca was revived as a US label for reissues in the 1980’s and 1990’s, some of these in conjunction with the GRP label. Decca Records Nashville was also formed to release new country recordings.

In 1997, Seagram bought out MCA/Universal, giving them ownership of Decca US. They then acquired Decca UK's parent company PolyGram in 1998, thus consolidating Decca trademark ownership under the new Universal Music Group. The recordings from the two Deccas have not, however, been reconsolidated under the Decca label, with reissues of US recordings typically appearing on the Geffen Records, MCA Nashville, Verve Records and Deutsche Grammophon imprints.

Today, Decca is a leading label for both classical music and Broadway scores. Decca Music Group Limited also includes the Philips Classics label, and those labels are grouped together with the Deutsche Grammophon and ECM labels into the Universal Classics group.

Labelcode: LC 0171

Cover that information on new releases with the country field and with company links, rights societies, labelcode etc.

Can anyone shed light on the Decca related LIFE Records label. I have DL 79121 with a label that looks just like the "color band" Decca label circa 1961-66, but instead of DECCA to the left, it has "LIFE". Fine print below is "Licensed and Original recording by Decca Records, a division of MCA Inc., New York, USA".
Both Sides Now Decca discography does not include it as a sub label, nor does Discogs.
