Features
The Rise and Fall of EMI Records by : Brian Southall


Electric and Musical Industries Limied (EMI) first saw the light of day in the UK in 1931. In a visionary move for the gramophone age; it manufactured both hardware (recording and playback equipment) and software (the records and tapes its machines would play.) For over a half century EMI dominated both sectors; its music division eventually becoming one of the most successful in the world with a roster that at various times included The Beatles; Frank Sinatra; Cliff Richard; Pink Floyd; The Beach Boys; Queen; The Spice Girls; Robbie Williams; Kylie Minogue; and Coldplay. Then; in the 1990s; things started to go wrong. This new book explores and investigates EMI's extraordinary decline from greatness over two decades of rejected takeovers; unsuccessful mergers; executive changes; profit warnings; artist and staff cuts; press criticism; and never-ending speculation.
