EMI INTERNATIONAL
RECORDS

EMI International Records ran from 1974 to late 1979, though there was one 'afterthought' on the label in late 1980. It was brought into being as part of a drive to split EMI into domestic and overseas divisions, and was intended as a successor to the Stateside label.  The material on it was to be taken from existing overseas catalogues and masters, and no British artists were to be signed to it.  Eventually its function seems to have been broadened, and it evolved to act as an outlet for products which were licensed to EMI rather than recorded by them - the 'LRD' in the discography below refers to EMI's Licensed Record Division, which appears to have been a fairly short-lived part of the company and was devoted to such material.  Sometimes the label featured the licensing company's logo: the second example shown came from Logo Records, the third from Sunburst.  A trio of singles in 1979 came out on the UK label with EMI International numbers.  Releases covered a whole spectrum of styles, from the Soul of Bo Kirkland & Ruth Davis to the Punk of Jilted John (both of whom had hit singles) via the Rock of Whitesnake.  Singles by the Punk group X-ray Spex had the usual INT-500 series catalogue numbers but a different label design; having few other labels to file under 'X' I have listed them as a separate entity (see 'X-ray Spex').  An EP by Whitesnake also had its own discrete design. Distributed By EMI Records.
