Parlophone Records Limited is a German-British record label founded in Germany in 1896 by the Carl Lindström Company. The British branch of the company, the Parlophone Company Limited, is also the record label Gorillaz currently belongs to.

History[]

Parlophone was founded in Germany in 1896 by the Carl Lindström Company as Parlophon. The British branch of the label was founded on 8 August 1923 as The Parlophone Company Limited (The Parlophone Co. Ltd.), which developed a reputation in the 1920s as a jazz record label. On 5 October 1926, the Columbia Graphophone Company acquired Parlophone's business, name, logo, and release library, and merged with the Gramophone Company on 31 March 1931 to become Electric & Musical Industries Limited. Warner Music Group acquired Parlophone on 7 February 2013, after EMI broke up, making Parlophone their third flagship label alongside Warner Records and Atlantic. Parlophone is the oldest of WMG's "flagship" record labels.

YouTube Channels[]

In 2014, EMI's channel named emimusic (now renamed to Parlophone Records) uploaded most of the Phase 1 music videos. EMI also uploaded Dirty Harry music video but it was blocked worldwide by the Warner Music Group who own Parlophone Records but EMI was owned by the Universal Music Group which due to Parlophone and EMI merging half owned Gorillaz. Parlophone's original youtube account just named "parlophone" uploaded a "remastered" version of the Feel Good Inc. music video. After Gorillaz uploaded all their music videos in HD quality this video was unlisted from the channel. EMI's youtube channel Youtube link currently redirects to Vevo's Youtube channel.
