EMI Electrola GmbH

EMI Electrola GmbH

Profile:
German subdivision of EMI Records from 1972 to 2002.
Responsible holding company of the EMI Electrola trademark / label.
Also operating recording and mastering studios as well as a vinyl pressing plant until 1993.

Vinyl identification:
German releases
- with a stamped runout pattern ## #### - A1 / B1 (1972 - 1979) or ####### A1 / B1 (1980 - 1993), without any further information. ## ##### is the partial cat.no.
- GEMA only.

Releases with GEMA and STEMRA, etched matrix or additional letters / numbers, were pressed by EMI Services Benelux B.V. (until mid 1987 only).
When the Dutch vinyl production ended in mid 1987, the 7" single manufacturing was transferred to EMI Electrola GmbH (ca. 2.8 million units).
The LP and 12" output (ca. 4.8 million LPs and 1.2 million 12"s) was split 50-50 between the Cologne and Chatou plants.
Dutch records pressed in Cologne since 1987 also carry GEMA and STEMRA.

7" center label / stamper rings:
Paper labels with diameter = 8,1 cm
Slight slope starting at ca. 1,2 cm (from label edge), ca. 1 cm wide (until center hole).
A 0,5 cm wide elevated ring with serrations and another ~0,5 cm wide ring between the serrations and the paper labels.

12" and LP center labels / stamper rings:
Printed paper labels with diameter = 10 cm.
Stamper ring diameter = 3,2 cm (width 1,2 cm to spindle hole).
The overall label area is slightly elevated from the runout area and the stamper ring itself is very accentuated so that the area to the spindle hole may appear slightly lower or slightly elevated. Often the ring has damaged the paper labels.

2002 was a year of reorganisation within the German EMI companies. EMI Electrola GmbH & Co. KG merged with the Virgin Schallplatten GmbH & Co. KG and formed EMI Music Germany GmbH & Co. KG.
