EMI AMERICA
RECORDS

EMI America Records was one of EMI's outlets for American material.  A subsidiary of Capitol, it was launched in December 1977 and lasted until the late '80s.  Catalogue numbers began in an AMI-500 series, but the prefix lost its 'I' after two issues; a more drastic change came in 1979, when the series altered to EA-100.  By this time Capitol Industries / EMI had taken over UA Records; the managements of EMI America and UA were being consolidated, and the link seems to have been reflected in the label design - several records from the EA-100 period (EA-102 to EA-111) had a United Artists logo on them and demos with a large hollowed-out central 'A', in the United Artists style.  Previous demos had been in the usual EMI style, with a black 'A' and 'DEMO RECORD NOT FOR SALE' on them); the Michael Johnson single shown is an issue, and the 'A' on it, which can be found on many of the AMI / AM prefixed records, merely indicates the 'A' side.  At the end of the decade EMI America and UA Records were merged to form EMI-UA, but records continued to appear on both labels.  The somewhat sober label design of the '70s was replaced by a more upbeat one in the early '80s.  EMI America's first single of the new numerical series, 'Sad Eyes' by Robert John (EA-101; 1979) was a modest hit; the label was to enjoy several more Chart successes, notably with the J. Geils Band.  Distributed By EMI Records. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
