Absorption of regional EMIsEdit
It seems that Warner's strategy to deal with regional EMI labels it acquired (i.e. "EMI Music [Insert Region]") is to rebrand them as "Parlophone Music [Insert Region]", presumably since it has the rights to the Parlophone name but not EMI (e.g. http://www.emimusic.es now redirects to http://www.parlophonemusic.es/, a website I'm almost sure didn't even exist before the split). Does anyone have a citable source to put this in the article? - Estoy Aquí (talk) 15:06, 23 August 2013 (UTC)
Parlophone Label GroupEdit
When European regulators forced Universal Music to spin off certain EMI operations before it can approve UMG's acquisition of EMI, the spun off companies were operated separately as Parlophone Label Group which was sold to Warner Music Group. Steelbeard1 (talk) 16:15, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
Only artists with recordings first issued on Parlophone are to be listed hereEdit
Now that Parlophone is reissuing recordings first issued on other EMI labels, only artists with recordings first issued on Parlophone are to be in the artists list. I've already deleted David Bowie and George Harrison for that reason. John Lennon is on the list because of the posthumously released Live in New York City (John Lennon album) on Parlophone.

Parlophone Communications was a motion picture production company founded in 1979 by Ted Field. Its divisions included Parlophone Records. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:1700:6EF1:57D0:AD21:71CB:955E:6F29 (talk) 19:10, 18 August 2018 (UTC)
The Roster section is getting into WP:IINFO territory. Making a stand alone list would help prevent edits that simply add an artist to this list that's distracting from the main content at hand. – The Grid (talk) 12:26, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
- Support – I also concur that the size and length is a burden on the article. I will note that it would be necessary to give the new List of Parlophone artists article a proper wikitable and individual citations to verify that each artist listed here is currently releasing under Parlophone or has done so in the past. – PhilipTerryGraham (talk · articles · reviews) 00:29, 26 October 2019 (UTC)
- Support for reasons already given. --John Maynard Friedman (talk) 17:05, 26 October 2019 (UTC)
