    Poly­dor Records was founded on 2 April 1913 by Ger­man Polyphon-Musik­w­erke AG in Leipzig and reg­is­tered on 25 July 1914 (Nr. 316613). The label was founded as Firma Brach­hausen & Riesener in 1887 by Gus­tav Adolf Brach­hausen and Ernst Paul Riess­ner, for man­u­fac­tur­ing their new me­chan­i­cal disc-play­ing music box Polyphon, in­vented in 1870. Dur­ing World War I on 24 April 1917, Polyphon-Musik­w­erke AG ac­quired the Ger­man Deutsche Gram­mophon-Ak­tienge­sellschaft record plant...


    In 1972, The Gram­mophon-Philips Group (GPG) re­or­ga­nized to cre­ate Poly­Gram, from Polydor and PhonoGram. The Poly­dor label con­tin­ued to run as a sub­sidiary label under the new com­pany. Through­out the 1970s, Poly­dor be­came a major rock label, also re­leas­ing records by such plat­inum-sell­ing acts as the Bee Gees and Glo­ria Gaynor. Into the 1980s, Poly­dor con­tin­ued to do re­spectable busi­ness, in spite of be­com­ing in­creas­ingly over­shad­owed by its Poly­Gram sis­ter labe...

    Twilight years in the United States

    Over the next few years, Poly­dor tried to keep it­self afloat with new artist sign­ings, new re­leases, and reis­sues, while still be­com­ing more and more dor­mant. In 1998, Poly­Gram was pur­chased by Sea­gram and ab­sorbed into its Uni­ver­sal Music Group. Dur­ing the con­sol­i­da­tion of these two music gi­ants, Poly­dor's United States op­er­a­tions were folded into In­ter­scope-Gef­fen-A&M and Uni­ver­sal Records, while its over­seas branch re­mained in­tact, with its records con­tin­u...

    Record pro­ducer Harold Shedd founded Poly­dor's Nashville, Ten­nessee, di­vi­sion in 1994, which spe­cial­ized in coun­try music. Among the acts signed to Poly­dor Nashville were Shane Sut­ton, Tasha Har­ris, 4 Run­ner, the Mof­fatts, Chely Wright, Mark Luna, Clin­ton Gre­gory, Amie Comeaux, along with Toby Keith and Davis Daniel, who trans­ferred from Mer­cury Nashville in 1994. The Nashville di­vi­sion was re­named A&M Nashville in March 1996 and closed in Sep­tem­ber of the same year, as Poly­Gram con­sol­i­dated all its Nashville op­er­a­tions under the Mer­cury name. Today, Poly­dor, along with EMI Records in the UK and Aus­tralia and UMG it­self in Canada dis­trib­ute Lost High­way Records' al­bums in the Com­mon­wealth realms.

    In 1972 the British Poly­dor Records Ltd. was re­named to Poly­dor Ltd. In the early 1970s, the main source of in­come for the label was the suc­cess­ful UK band Slade as well as The New Seek­ers and The Who. At the time, be­tween the 1970s and 1980s, the Poly­dor/Poly­Gram Se­nior VP (who was orig­i­nally the first head of their new [at the time] rock de­part­ment) was Jerry Jaffe, who also signed acts such as Motörhead, Dexy's Mid­night Run­ners, and the Jam. He also in­ter­acted with many fa­mous and suc­cess­ful artists while in that po­si­tion, in­clud­ing Nick Lowe and John Lennon, as well as going on to work with groups such as the Jesus and Mary Chain and Saint Eti­enne the late 1980s and 1990s. Later, in the late 1970s and early 1980s, the label was also home to the Who and the Jam (as well as its suc­ces­sor act the Style Coun­cil). Al­though Poly­dor's Amer­i­can branch is nearly in­ac­tive, in the United King­dom Poly­dor re­mains one of the most promi­nent la­bels in th...

    • Történet
    • A Polygram Kiadó
    • Polydor UK

    A kiadó eleinte a német Deutsche Grammophon Gesellschaft független része volt, majd a Polydor márkanevet először 1924-ben használta, miután megszakította a kapcsolatot a Deutsche Grammophon Gessellschaft-tal az első világháború alatt, majd His Master Voice néven futott tovább Németországban, ahol a felvételek Electrolavédjegy alatt kerültek kiadásra. A Polydor kiadó népszerű lett 1946-ban, és a klasszikus felvételeken kívül szinte minden megjelent lemezen ez a címke volt olvasható. A klasszikus zenét továbbra is a Deutsche Grammpphon az EMI egysége képviselte 1949-ben.

    1972-ben a Polydor összeolvadt a Philips tulajdonában lévő Phonogram kiadóval az Amerikai Egyesült Államokban. A Polydor címke továbbra is megmaradt, csupán Amerikában változtatták meg a címkéket a két cég egyesítése végett. A 70-es évek diszkó korszaka rányomta a bélyegét a kiadóra is, és olyan diszkó sztárok is megjelentek a kiadónál mint a Bee Gees, vagy Gloria Gaynor. A 80-as években a kiadó nyerességes volt, mivel háttérbe szorította a Mercury Records kiadót, és a Polydor vette át az irányítást a piacon, és rendelkezett a brit Deccakatalógus felett is. A 90-es években a Polydor kezdett alulteljesíteni, így később létrejött a Polygram Label Group (PLG), majd 1994-ben a Polydor és Atlas kiadó összevonása, így kezdte meg a működését az A & M Records kiadó. A Polydor és Atlas kiadó végül 1995-ben szétvált, így újra Polydor Records lett a nevük.

    A 70-es évek elején a kiadó legfőbb bevételi forrása a híres angol banda, a Slade volt. Későbbiekben a The Jam és a Sweetvoltak a legsikeresebb csapataik. Napjainkban rengeteg angol előadó tartozik hozzájuk, többek között Cheryl Cole, La Roux, Duffy, Girls Aloud, James Morrison, Boyzone, The Saturdays és Ellie Goulding. Rengeteg amerikai előadó lemezei is a Polydor gondozásában jelenik meg, például a Black Eyed Peas, Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, Demi Lovato, Snoop Dogg, Janet Jackson és a 50 Cent.
