American, out of Hollywood, California.  Liberty was brought into being by Simon Waronker in 1955.  At first it concentrated mainly on Orchestral and Big Band music, but over the years it broadened out sufficiently to include novelty records by the Chipmunks, Rock 'n' Roll hits by Eddie Cochran and Bobby Vee, surf songs by Jan and Dean, and Blues by Canned Heat.  Liberty was bought by Transamerica in 1968, and was combined with United Artists; Al Bennett, previously president and at that time owner of the label, was fired, and a decline set in.  The label had disappeared by 1972.  In 1978 the name and back-catalogue were sold to EMI, along with the rest of the United Artists labels; it was reactivated several times in the '80s and '90s.  In Britain, Liberty product came out on the London label until 1962, when the Liberty label proper took its bow, via EMI.  Early promo labels from this period are white with a large red 'A' on them; later ones are green with a large white 'A'.  The two-tone blue label of the late '60s, which came into use in mid 1967, is the design that is most commonly met with, thanks to hits by Canned Heat and the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band; manufacture and distribution of the vast majority of these blue-labelled singles was by Philips.  In 1970 Liberty joined its foster-parent United Artists at EMI; the three-pronged centre dinking became four-pronged and EMI-style demos appeared.  The labels still had 'Manufactured by Philips Records Ltd.' on them, so presumably they were old ones that EMI was using up.  Before long the company adopted a new and rather restrained black label. The discography's for UP and EM Series see UNITED ARTISTS and EMI.  Thanks to Robert Lyons for the info.
