Philips U.S. Series

[Philips Logo]

In 1961-1962, Dutch Company Philips signed an exchange agreement with Mercury (and subsequently Philips bought Mercury). This Philips Series were introduced in the U.S. in that period.

Although some of the titles are U.S. releases of original Dutch (and other European) Philips recordings, many titles are also original U.S. recordings, so we can regard this series as one of the subsidiary labels of Mercury Records. As a matter of fact, there are some recordings which was originally planned to be released under EmArcy or Mercury, but transfered to this Philips label. And there is even an interesting example which was originally planned to be released under Philips label, but transfered to Limelight label.

Catalogue numbers for this series have PHM (Monaural) and PHS (Stereo) prefix.
