History[change | change source]

Its American label was established in late 1934; subsequently the link with the British company was broken for several decades. They are known for its development of recording methods (in the UK) and for the development of original cast albums (in the US). Both wings are now part of the Universal Music Group, owned by Vivendi, a media conglomerate based in France.
