Label History Regal Zonophone Records was a British record label formed in …more 1932, through a merger of the Regal and Zonophone labels. This followed the merger of those labels’ respective parent companies – the Columbia Graphophone Company and the Gramophone Company – to form EMI. At the merger, those records from the Regal Records catalogue were prefixed ‘MR’ and those from the Zonophone Records catalogue were prefixed ‘T’. Record releases after the merger continued using only the ‘MR’ prefix.
Originally Regal Zonophone handled American releases from Okeh Records, Victor Records and Columbia Records, as well as offering home-grown recordings by artists such as Gracie Fields and George Formby. The label is also known for its releases of Salvation Army (particularly brass band) music.
