Parlophone Records Limited (also known as Parlophone Records and Parlophone) is a German-British major record label founded in Germany in 1896 by the Carl Lindström Company as Parlophon. The British branch of the company was founded August 8, 1923 as The Parlophone Co. Ltd., which developed a reputation in the 1920s as a leading jazz record label. On October 5, 1926, the Columbia Graphophone Company acquired Parlophone's business, name, and release library, and later merged with the Gramophone Company on 31 March 1931 to become Electric & Musical Industries Limited (EMI).
