Polygon (U.K.) / c. 1954

back next

Design: Founded in 1949, primarily to help serve the career of British pop singer Petula Clark, who is still performing. The label was jokingly referred to by some as the 'Dead Parrot' (Polly-gone). Gold on red is a colour combination that is often hard to read.

History: A seldom-seen device of the label name being placed around the spindle hole, seen also on the Chinese Art-Tune label. Near the end of 1955, Polygon Records was sold to Nixa Records, then part of Pye Records, which led to the establishment of Pye Nixa Records (subsequently known as Pye).
