EMI Records

Profile:
EMI Records is sometimes referenced as a copyright, license holder or distributor on releases. It also manufactured records and was frequently uncredited (see below). Please use this company "only" for that purpose. Do not enter it as Label.

For releases that carry the EMI logo, please use EMI as label. For releases that mention EMI Records Ltd. or EMI Records Limited as a copyright holder, please use EMI Records Ltd..

EMI Records manufactured records at their record factories in Hayes, Middlesex. The pressing plant previously operated as The Gramophone Co. Ltd. until EMI took over on 1 July 1973. The plant was finally closed by EMI in 2000 and was subsequently acquired by the independent manufacturer Portalspace Records Limited. Please only use Pressed By on records manufactured between July 1973 and 2000.

EMI 'in-house' pressings:
For vinyl pressing, the plant used the 9 and 3 o'clock locations for mother and stamper identity respectively (oriented to the matrix). For stampers the company used the 10-digit code "GRAMOPHLTD"; G=1 R=2 A=3 M=4 O=5 P=6 H=7 L=8 T=9 D=0.

Contract pressings:
The Gramophone Co. Ltd. plant, operating as EMI Records from July 1973, also undertook contract pressings for other companies from the late 1960s until 1999. Their clients included Liberty, United Artists Records and Island Records from the late 1960s until the closure of the facilities in 1999, also Polygram, from 1988 when the Polygram Record Service operation was terminated in the UK, until 1992 when Polygram switched record production to other suppliers.

These contract pressings never directly credited EMI Records and can be identified by runout pattern -xU-m-n (e.g. -1U-1-7). A record with the following in the runout "LASH 19-A-1U-1-Q2" can be broken down as follows:
"LASH 19" is the catalogue number. "A" is the side identifier. "1U" is the cut number with U identifying the pressing as a contract pressing (i.e. that it was not cut at the EMI-owned Abbey Road Studios) "1-Q2" shows the mother and stamper numbers.
