Parlophone
Parlophone
Records Limited (also known as Parlophone
Parlophone
Records and Parlophone) is a German-British major record label founded in Germany in 1896 by the Carl Lindström Company
Carl Lindström Company
as Parlophon. The British branch of the company was founded in 8 August 1923 as The Parlophone Co. Ltd., which developed a reputation in the 1920s as a leading jazz record label. On 5 October 1926, the Columbia Graphophone
Columbia Graphophone
Company acquired Parlophone's business, name and release library, and later merged with the Gramophone Company
Gramophone Company
on 31 March 1931 to become Electric & Musical Industries Limited (EMI). George Martin
George Martin
joined EMI
EMI
in 1950 as assistant label manager, taking over as manager in 1955. Martin produced and released a mix of product including comedy recordings of The Goons, the pianist Mrs Mills, and teen idol Adam Faith. In 1962, Martin signed The Beatles, at the time an unknown struggling rock band from Liverpool. During the 1960s, with artists such as Cilla Black, Billy J. Kramer, The Fourmost, and contemporary Manchester
Manchester
band The Hollies
The Hollies
also signed to the label, Parlophone
Parlophone
became one of the world's most famous and prestigious record labels. For several years, Parlophone
Parlophone
claimed the best-selling UK single "She Loves You", and the best-selling UK album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, both by The Beatles. The label also achieved placement of seven singles at No. 1 during 1964, when it also claimed top spot on the UK Albums Chart for 40 weeks. Parlophone
Parlophone
continued as a division of EMI, until it was merged into the Gramophone Co. Ltd. on 1 July 1965. On 1 July 1973, the Gramophone Co. Ltd. was renamed as EMI
EMI
Records Limited. On 28 September 2012, regulators officially approved Universal Music Group (UMG)'s planned acquisition of EMI, on condition that its EMI Records Ltd. group would be divested from the combined group. EMI Records Ltd. included Parlophone
Parlophone
and other labels to be divested and were for a short time operated in a single entity known as the Parlophone Label Group
Parlophone Label Group
(PLG), while UMG pended their sale. Warner Music Group (WMG) later acquired Parlophone
Parlophone
and PLG in 7 February 2013, making Parlophone
Parlophone
their new third flagship label, alongside Warner Bros. Records
Warner Bros. Records
and Atlantic Records. PLG was renamed as the Parlophone
Parlophone
Records Limited group (PRL) in May 2013. Parlophone

History[edit] Early years[edit] Parlophone
Parlophone
was founded as "Parlophon" by Carl Lindström Company
Carl Lindström Company
in 1896.[1] The name Parlophon was used for gramophones before the company began making records of their own. The label's ₤ trademark is a German L that stands for its founder, Carl Lindström. (It coincidentally resembles the British pound sign £, which itself is derived from the letter L for the Ancient Roman unit of measurement Libra, which means pound in Latin.) During World War I, the Transoceanic Trading Company was set up in the Netherlands to look after its overseas assets.[citation needed] On 8 August 1923, the British branch of "Parlophone" (with the "e" added) was established, led by artists and repertoire manager Oscar Preuss. Parlophone
Parlophone
established a master leasing arrangement with the American label Okeh Records, making Parlophone
Parlophone
a leading jazz label in the UK. The CLPGS has published a list of Parlophone
Parlophone
titles issued between the years of 1923 and 1956. EMI
EMI
years and success[edit] In 1927, the Columbia Graphophone Company
Columbia Graphophone Company
acquired a controlling interest in the Carl Lindström Company
Carl Lindström Company
and in Parlophone. On March 31, 1931, Columbia Graphophone
Columbia Graphophone
merged with the Gramophone Company
Gramophone Company
to form Electric & Musical Industries Ltd (EMI), and thus Parlophone became a subsidiary of EMI. Under EMI, Parlophone
Parlophone
maintained its status as a jazz label. In 1929, the New Rhythm Style Series started for jazz[2] with recordings from Okeh, Columbia, Brunswick, and Decca. As time went on, the label also released speciality recordings of spoken word and comedy, such as the Goons and Flanders and Swann. In 1950, Preuss hired George Martin
George Martin
as his assistant. When Preuss retired in 1955, Martin succeeded him as Parlophone's manager. Leading Parlophone
Parlophone
artists in the 1950s included Germany's Obernkirchen Children's Choir and Scottish musician Jimmy Shand. At the dawn of the rock era, Parlophone
Parlophone
signed Humphrey Lyttelton, the Vipers Skiffle Group, Mrs Mills, Jim Dale, Keith Kelly, Peter Sellers, Bernard Cribbins, The Temperance Seven, Laurie London and Shane Fenton, who would sporadically reach the British Top 20 chart. Their only consistently successful act until the "Beat Boom" was teen idol Adam Faith, who was signed to the label in 1959 by Norman Newell, an EMI A&R manager. Treading a path similar to other British record labels of the era, Parlophone
Parlophone
released all manner of domestic and foreign licensed products including that of James Brown, but had little success in comparison to that of EMI's sibling companies HMV
HMV
and Columbia Graphophone Company. The label's fortunes began to rise in 1962, when Martin signed the Liverpool
Liverpool
band The Beatles. Along with Cilla Black, Billy J. Kramer The Fourmost, and The Hollies, The Beatles
The Beatles
brought worldwide attention to Parlophone, and it became one of the world's most prestigious record labels. After Martin left to form Associated Independent Recording
Associated Independent Recording
(AIR) Studios in 1965, Parlophone
Parlophone
was absorbed into EMI's Gramophone Company group, which was renamed EMI
EMI
Records Ltd. in 1973, with Parlophone maintaining its identity. Parlophone
Parlophone
became dormant in 1973 when most of EMI's heritage labels were phased out in favor of the new EMI
EMI
Records.[3] Parlophone
Parlophone
was revived in 1980.[4] During the next decades the label signed Pet Shop Boys, Duran Duran, Roxette, Radiohead, Supergrass, Guy Berryman, The Chemical Brothers, Blur, Coldplay, Kylie Minogue, Damon Albarn, Conor Maynard, Gabrielle Aplin, and Gorillaz. On 23 April 2008, Miles Leonard was confirmed as the label's president.[5] EMI
EMI
merging with UMG and WMG acquisition[edit] On 28 September 2012, regulators officially approved Universal Music Group's planned acquisition of Parlophone's parent group EMI
EMI
for £1.2 billion, subject to conditions imposed by the European Commission requiring that UMG sell off a number of labels, including Parlophone itself (aside from the Beatles' catalogue, which was kept by UMG and moved to Universal's newly formed Calderstone Productions), Chrysalis Records, Ensign Records, Virgin Classics, EMI
EMI
Classics and EMI's operations in Portugal, Spain, France, Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Poland.[6] These labels and catalogues were operated independently separately from Universal as Parlophone Label Group
Parlophone Label Group
in preparation for a possible transaction early in 2013. UMG received several offers for PLG, including those from Island Records
Island Records
founder Chris Blackwell, Simon Fuller, a Sony/BMG consortium, Warner Music Group, and MacAndrews & Forbes.[7][8][9] On 7 February 2013, it was confirmed that Warner Music Group
Warner Music Group
would acquire Parlophone Label Group
Parlophone Label Group
for US$765 million. The deal was approved in May 2013 by the European Union, who saw no concerns around the deal because of WMG's relatively smaller reach in comparison to the merged UMG and Sony. Warner Music closed the deal on July 1. Parlophone Label Group
Parlophone Label Group
was actually the old EMI
EMI
Records Ltd company that included both the Parlophone
Parlophone
and the eponymous EMI
EMI
labels. The EMI
EMI
name was retained by Universal (as Virgin EMI
EMI
Records) whilst the old EMI
EMI
Records Ltd. was legally renamed Parlophone
Parlophone
Records Ltd. Soon after acquiring Parlophone, WMG signed an agreement with IMPALA and the Merlin Network (two groups which opposed the EMI/Universal deal) to divest $200 million worth of artists to independent labels in order to help offset the consolidation triggered by the merger.[10][11] As of March 2015, over 140 independent labels had placed bids on the rights to the recordings of over 11,000 Warner Music artists, valuing $6 billion.[12] In April 2016, the back catalogue of British rock band Radiohead, who had sued Parlophone
Parlophone
and EMI
EMI
over a dispute in music royalties, was transferred to XL Recordings, the label that released their last two albums, In Rainbows and The King of Limbs.[13] All labels had to complete their acquisitions from Warner Music by September 30, 2017. As of December 2016, WMG had sold $45 million worth of assets.[14] WMG treats Parlophone
Parlophone
as its third "frontline" label group, alongside Atlantic Records
Atlantic Records
and Warner Bros. Records.[15] In the US, most of Parlophone's artists are now distributed under Warner Bros. Records. Coldplay

Notable releases[edit] Rhythm-style series[edit] In addition to the occasional release of US material from OKeh and Columbia, in about 1929, Parlophone
Parlophone
started a series of American jazz records on their "Rhythm Style Series". Edgar Jackson was the director of this series, which was issued within the existing R- series (the first issue was R-448). Culled from the American OKeh, artists like Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbecke, Frank Trumbauer, Joe Venuti, Duke Ellington, Miff Mole
Miff Mole
and other major artists who recorded for OKeh. These records were usually "split-coupled" (the top and bottom side of each record was usually by different artists and did not correspond with the original American coupling). The "Second New Rhythm-Style" series replaced the first series in about 1931, and there was a separate series for each year from 1934 through 1941, as well as some miscellany series. These 78s were popular and remained in print for years. A select number of American Columbia and Brunswick recordings also populated these series with artists like Fletcher Henderson, Chocolate Dandies, Jack Teagarden, Eddie Condon
Eddie Condon
and others. Even though these records were never licensed for sale in the US, they were heavily imported through jazz shops like Commodore and Liberty in the late 1930s and were sold through the 1940s and into the early 1950s. They are treasured by collectors because they are pressed from the original stampers and usually sound much better than the worn and usually rare US OKeh original records. Parlophone
Parlophone
PNY series[edit] In America in 1929 there was a short-lived Parlophone
Parlophone
label made and distributed by OKeh.[17] Initially, certain OKeh records were issued using the Parlophone
Parlophone
label and using the OKeh catalog number. An example – Miff Mole's "Birmingham Bertha" b/w "Moanin' Low" – has been found on Parlophone
Parlophone
PNY-41273 and Odeon ONY-41273 (issued as by "Eddie Gordon's Band") as well as the standard OKeh 41273 (issued as by " Miff Mole
Miff Mole
and his Molers"). OKeh then started the PNY-34000 series (along with the Odeon ONY-36000 series) lasting until late 1930 or early 1931. No one has been able to determine for whom these two labels were intended, since many surviving copies are in new condition. A number of noted record collectors and researchers (George Blacker, Carl Kenziora, Len Kunstadt, among other members of the New York Record Research Associates) had long speculated that since these records were found in a west coast warehouse uncirculated, they were possibly intended for offshore sales in US possessions (Guam, Marianas, etc.) or possibly at military offshore bases, but this has never been proven. One of the reasons for this speculation is because OKeh specifically recorded quite a number of sides without vocals and issued them only on Parlophone
Parlophone
and Odeon (in addition to the standard vocal versions). These non-vocal version are especially prized by collectors. Regardless, this series (along with OKeh's Odeon ONY- series) appears to not have been available for sale in the United States. The Beatles[edit] Main article: The Beatles Parlophone
Parlophone
released The Beatles' albums up to Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band. Subsequent releases – The Beatles
The Beatles
(the White Album), Yellow Submarine, Abbey Road
Abbey Road
and Let It Be – were issued on The Beatles' own Apple record label, distributed by EMI
EMI
and bearing Parlophone
Parlophone
catalogue numbers. The Beatles
The Beatles
deal is said to be one of the cheapest made by Parlophone Records.[18] Companies used and abused the Beatles' name, producing everything from T-shirts to hairspray. Their early songs were used in many commercials without permission from The Beatles. The Beatles
The Beatles
were only allowed to own 49% of the company shares, therefore only owning 49% of their songs, which was not enough to buy back the songs from the company.[19] Despite the separation of Parlophone
Parlophone
from EMI
EMI
as a condition of EMI's acquisition by UMG, Universal was allowed to keep the Beatles' recorded music catalogue, which was assigned to a new subsidiary called Calderstone Productions.[20]

It has recently signed indie rock band Two Door Cinema Club, Nottingham Artist Hex and electrofunk duo Chromeo, along with up-and-coming American, indie dream pop band, Saint Motel, who recently topped European charts with their My Type EP.[21] It is also EMI's oldest active label: its contemporary HMV

The R series is actually carried over from the 78 rpm era, the earliest numbers dating back to at least 1930. Notable artists signed to Parlophone[edit] Because Parlophone
