Creator / EMI America Records

Go To

EMI America was a new major label formed by EMI in 1978. It was a sibling label to Capitol Records, similar to the relationship between Warner and Reprise, Atlantic and Atco, or Columbia and Epic.

The very first EMI America single, Michael Johnson's "Bluer Than Blue", was a major hit, and the fledgling company also found success with David Bowie, Gary U.S. Bonds, Kim Carnes, The J. Geils Band, Corey Hart, Pet Shop Boys, Queensrÿche, Stray Cats, Talk Talk, and George Thorogood, among other acts. The imprint was also used for reissues from the Liberty/Imperial/United Artists catalog. However, by 1987 it was absorbed into another of EMI's sublabels, Manhattan Records.
