Independent label: The Philips label was created in 1950 by the Philips Phonografische Industrie N.V. (PPI), subsidiary of the Dutch Philips Electronics company. The label was distributed globally by Philips' local subsidiaries or licensees. In the US the label was introduced by Mercury Record Corporation in 1962. In 1972, Philips became a PolyGram label. Following a reorganisation in the early 1980s, Polygram's classical music labels, including Philips, became part of the new Philips Classics Productions division. From then on, Philips was mainly a classical music label and most of their releases used the Philips Classics banner. In France, the Philips label continued to be used for pop releases well into the 1990s.
CUT series was one of fifteen Classic Cuts re-issues. All were issued in October 1980 on Phonogram distributed labels with with a variation of different coloured picture sleeves although all featuring the same artwork. All copies of the original 1980 Classic Cuts series appear to be manufactured in France, both the 7" vinyl and the picture sleeves, but these were only pressed in France for export purpose solely for the UK market. Distributed By Phonogram.
