Wing Records

Profile:
Wing Records was a subsidiary of Mercury Records that enjoyed its greatest initial success during the mid-1950s, mostly with vocalist Nick Noble. It released singles briefly in 1955 and 1956 but focus quickly shifted to LPs.

It became a budget reissue label in the Sixties. Its British releases were at first from EMI, which distributed Mercury until 1961 when Philips bought the Chicago-based label. EMI continued pressing and distributing the parent label until 1964 while Wing switched distribution to Philips (UK Wing LPs had a logo that read A Philips Records Product on their covers; Philips and Mercury catalog material were issued on the label). Mercury in the US retired the label along with Smash (4) and Fontana in 1970.

In 1987, under Mercury president Ed Eckstein, Wing was revived as an R&B label and had successes with Vanessa Williams, Tony! Toni! Toné! and Brian McKnight. The label was deactivated in 1995 and its remaining artists (by then only Williams and McKnight) were transferred to parent label Mercury.
