  Decca Records - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Decca Records is a British record label established in 1929.
Decca’s emergence as a major classical label may be attributed to three concurrent events: the development of the FFRR technique, the introduction of the long-playing record, and the recruitment of John Culshaw to Decca’s London office.
FFRR (full frequency range recording) was a spin-off of Decca’s technical work during the Second World War in the field of radar, and enabled a greatly enhanced frequency range (high and low notes) to be captured on recordings.

 Decca Records
Decca Records was a record label from 1929 to 1980.
In 1934 a USA branch of Decca was launched, which quickly became a major player in the depressed United States record market thanks to it's roster of popular artists and the shrewd management of Jack Kapp[?].
In 1962 Decca executives turned down a chance to record a young group called the Beatles in favor of Brian Poole and the Tremeloes[?]; in retrospect this was an historic mistake.

One of the most famous record labels of the Swing era was the Decca Record Company, remembered for its Jazz, Swing, and popular music recordings.
These records were recorded using improved recording equipment, and were as good or better than the LP and 45-rpm records that appeared in 1948 and 1949.
Records with the Decca brand name appeared for a few more years, but soon this familiar label became part of recording history.

 Is There A Difference (London/Decca) by Sedrick Harris
British Decca was forbidden to import their record albums to the U.S. using the Decca name because there already was a U.S. based record company in America named Decca Records, Inc.
The Europeans were never fond of record changers (the reason for the differences in the stamping of the multi-record sets already mentioned) and took care not to mistreat their valuable albums while most Americans were/are notorious for mistreating records.
The two Decca's sounded very similar which says that the German re-issues are really excellent and a great value (the major differences is in the dynamics of the pressings with the original having a greater dynamic impact and a slight softening of the transient high frequency information).

By now her voice was showing wear and tear from the years of hard living, but her true talent had always had been in the filtering of a song through her personality and experience, and plenty of both show through in the series of recordings she made for Granz.

There is of course the musical element -- many of Decca's earliest successes were with country artists, and the company's commitment to hard country music was in many ways stronger than that of other major labels.
Even during the height of the Nashville Sound, and right into the thick of the Countrypolitan era, Decca (which became MCA in 1970) was still putting out fairly meaty country music.
The good side to this, though, is that means there's plenty of thrill left to the hunt when it comes to collecting Decca material.
