A multinational label owned by Universal Music Group.
[b]Please note: Polydor 7 numeral catalogue numbers were not introduced until April 1970 - any earlier item with such a number is a reissue.
Words such as Deluxe, Super and Special are not part of the catalogue number - these are price codes and can be entered as identifiers.
For all unofficial releases (bootlegs, counterfeits, pirate compilations ...) that pretend to be a release of Polydor please use [L=Polydor (2)].[/b]
Polydor was founded in 1924 as a brand name for [l=Deutsche Grammophon] products marketed outside of Germany. It grew to become a multi-national label with divisions in many countries, including in Germany. After a series of label mergers and buy-outs, Polydor ended up as part of the international Universal Music Group. The German division was first merged with Island Records Germany and became [l=Polydor Island Group], which was in turn merged with other divisions into [l=Universal Music Domestic Division].
Label code: LC 0309 / LC 00309
