  Parlophone - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Parlophone is a record label which was founded in Germany prior to World War I by the Carl Lindstrom Company.
In 1923, the British branch of Parlophone was established, led by Oscar Preuss as AandR manager.
Parlophone's fortunes began to rise in 1962, when Martin signed a rising new Liverpool pop band, The Beatles, who soon turned Parlophone into one of the world's most famous and sought-after record labels.

 EMI Recorded Music :: How EMI Works - Fact Sheet
Parlophone Records has a musical pedigree stretching back to the 1960s and the Beatles.
Moving on to the present day, and along with our more established artists, recent signings show that our roster is nothing if not diverse, including the rock of Coldplay, modern pop sound of Kylie Minogue and Jamelia's cutting edge urban slant on pop.
Unless we have requested the submission of material from a specific artist or songwriter, we suggest you seek to have your submission made through an established industry source (such as a manager, lawyer, publisher or producer) with whom our company representatives have an existing business relationship.

 Beatles UK Record Company Singles Sleeves
The "original" Parlophone sleeve, as far as the Beatles are concerned, is much more colorful than those which followed.
The first of the "green" sleeves, which accompanied Parlophone singles from mid-1963 until about mid-1965, has a lone lone Parlophone logo at the bottom.
At the bottom of the sleeve is the Parlophone-EMI logo mentioning the manufacturer as "The Parlophone Co. Ltd.." The top of the sleeves were now ruffled; the ruffling would continue through 1968.

 Dr. John : Best of the Parlophone Years (Bonus Tracks) - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
John recorded for Parlophone leading up to this compilation were very distinct projects.
One year later, he recorded a deliciously dripping tribute to Duke Ellington titled Duke Elegant, and after the end of the millennium he followed that with an old-fashioned New Orleans R&B records (2001's Creole Moon) and a heavily collaborational record (N'Awlinz: Dis Dat or d'udda) including B.B. King, Randy Newman, and Willie Nelson.
Best of the Parlophone Years recycles 15 tracks from those sessions and adds a pair of bonus tracks: the unreleased "Careless Love" featuring Willie Tee (circa N'Awlinz: Dis Dat or d'udda) and "Look Out" (added to a Japanese version of Anutha Zone).

 A Guide to Australian Parlophone/Apple Beatles LP's
In March, 1964, Australian Parlophone made the decision to change the print color from gold to silver as they introduced stereo LP's.
The Parlophone LP's were reissued in 1968-9 on a yellow and fl Parlophone label.
In 1972, they were reissued again onto a fl and orange Parlophone label, similar in style to the labels used in the 1970's in England.

 Popjustice - Siobhan Signs to Parlophone - Official
Parlophone haven't signed her so she can fart about and release whatever she wants; they're expecting to make cold, hard cash, and all the critical acclaim in the world won't help you if you don't sell.
I meant that i believe Siobhan and Parlophone arn't out to sell millions and millions of records, yeah it would be nice, but i can't see Parlophone investing millions into her career at the beginning.
The difference between Parlophone and London is that Parlophone actually have some huge, multi-million selling artists, along with many smaller lower selling, but highly cirtically acclaimed artists.

In my humble opinon, the old Parlophone pressings were some of the best pressed records during the era of vinyl.
Parlophone record numbers starting with PMC are mono and PCS are stereo pressings (PMCO and PCSO respectively for Australian (OZ) pressings).
Any of the first four LPs with the "Gramophone" text instead of "Parlophone" are later pressings and not worth as much as their earlier counterparts.

 The Parlophone Record Label
Another tantalising thing about Parlophone was that, like the other EMI labels Columbia and HMV, Parlophone's label changed in 1962 - just after The Beatles released their first LP and single.
The wording appears under the yellow Parlophone name, and is a good general way of assessing whether that copy of one of The Beatles' frst two albums is an original pressing.
At this time Parlophone lost some of it's acts to the newly created Harvest label.

 eBay Guides - Parlophone Matrix, Mothers, Stampers Tax Codes
So for your Parlophone records, the Master is the matrix at the 6 o'clock position, the Mother is the number etched in the deadwax at the 9 o'clock location and the Stamper is identified by the letter(s) etched at the 3 o'clock postion.
For the 3 o'clock position, Parlophone use the following coding: G R A M O P H L T D (Gramophone Ltd) where G=1, R=2, A=3, M=4, O=5, P=6, H=7, L=8, T=9 and D=0.
The ultimate early pressing of any Beatle Parlophone LP would be denoted with the codes 1/G 1/G (side 1 and side 2), where the "1" represents the first Mother (9 o'clock) and the "G" denotes the first Stamper (3 o'clock) or one of the first 300 off the press!

 The Usenet Guide to Beatles Recording Variations
In the CD mix [c] the vocal is moved to right center, leaving the cowbell and guitar track far right, and the cowbell is heard continuously through the refrain, evidence that the track is being faded during vocal lines in [b].
Reports of a different mono mix with the piano much softer, on UK Parlophone GEP 8952 Nowhere Man (EP) 1965 (see the book Every Little Thing for example), are mistaken, but perhaps "piano" is a transcription error for "cowbell" since the EP with [a] does differ from Capitol mono with [b1].
This was in the Abbey Road show in 1983, and mixed in stereo for the Sessions album, and has been bootlegged in a different stereo mix in the Ultra Rare Trax material of 1988.

 Amazon.co.uk: The Best of the Parlophone Years: Music: Dr. John   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Since signing to Parlophone 1997, Dr John has released four great albums--all very different, but all in the distinctive and inimitable style of the music industry's favourite physician.
From Anutha Zone in 1998 with a host of guest collaborations, through the Duke Ellington Centenary celebration Duke Elegant in 1999, to his personal interpretation of New Orleans in 2001 with Creole Moon, and last year's star-studded N'Awlinz--Dis, Dat Or D'Udda, Dr John has produced a wealth of latter-day musicality for the label.
The Best of the Parlophone Years is a veritable gumbo, including as it does the best tracks from this productive eight year period accompanied by the good Doctor's own sleevenotes commenting on each of the four albums from which the tracks are taken.

This set draws from the four albums Dr. John recorded for the British Parlophone label from 1997 to 2004 (released in the United States on Blue Note and Virgin).
These collaborators never overshadow the good Doctor, rather, they show how broad their shared influences are, as well as what a formidable shadow he casts across the music that's followed him.

If you land one of the first four LPs with "The Parlophone Co. LTD..." text and it is a stereo copy, you should take your significant other out for dinner and have a toast.
If the only letter at 3 o'clock is "G", and the mother at 9 o'clock is "1" you have yourself one of the first 300-500 pressings ever made of that record.
The matrix represents the "loud cut" pressing where the record plays louder than Parlophone specifications called for at the time.

In the home video A Hard Day's Night, the new stereo mix [c] is used in the train scene but the old one [b] with the harmonica mistake is used in the television show scene later, where it seems to match his movements.
US mono [a] has the piano mixed way down compared to the others (it is not completely missing as some say), and the single drumbeat just before the chorus is either missing or way down so that we hear only what sounds like a thump on a guitar body...
The mock stereo conversion from it [c1] is muddy.
