Decca Records - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (941 words)
In the late 1950s, Patsy Cline was signed to the US Decca label from Everest Records and had three albums and numerous singles while she was alive and several more albums and singles produced after her death in 1962.
In 1962 British Decca executive Dick Rowe turned down a chance to record a young group from Liverpool called the Beatles in favor of local beat combo Brian Poole and the Tremeloes; in retrospect this was a historic mistake.
The Decca label is currently in use by Universal Music Group worldwide; this is possible because Universal Studios (which officially dropped the MCA name after the Seagram buyout in 1997) acquired PolyGram, British Decca's parent company in 1998, thus consolidating Decca trademark ownership.
Decca Labels (786 words)
Decca's second label retained some circular banding along the sides but reduced the overall size of the label.
This Decca style began with approximately album DL 8100 in the 8000 series, 8319 in the 8300 series, and 9018 in the 9000 series.
Decca used this label style until 1973, when MCA switched all Decca albums and singles to its own (MCA) label.
