Parlophone is a record label that was founded in Germany in 1896 by the Carl Lindström Company as Parlophon. The British branch was formed in 1923 as "Parlophone Records" which developed a reputation in the 1920s as a leading jazz label. In 1926, Columbia Graphophone Company acquired the Parlophone business, label name and its titles. Columbia Graphophone later became Columbia Records, and then EMI. The Parlophone label continues to be used. On 21 September 2012, regulators officially approved Universal Music Group's planned acquisition of EMI, on condition that Parlophone is divested from the combined group. Until the Parlophone operations are sold, the entity is called the Parlophone Label Group. However, the early Parlophone titles are now in the public domain.
